Thomas Sowell, Amazing Random Thoughts

I read this editorial by Thomas Sowell and was blown away.

He's my kind of guy, plain-spoken and to-the-point.

Here's a quote from the editorial:
Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez, Moammar Qaddafi, and Vladimir Putin have all praised Barack Obama. When enemies of freedom and democracy praise your president, what are you to think? When you add to this Barack Obama’s many previous years of associations and alliances with people who hate America — Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Father Pfleger, and so on — at what point do you stop denying the obvious and start to connect the dots?

The whole editorial is well worth your time.

Former Confederate Soldier's Grave

This gentleman survived the Civil War, and is buried in Powder Springs, Georgia where we lived for a few years. (We LOVED it there.)

I've always kind-of liked this shot, but decided to see how it would look in B&W.

I like it, and since I haven't written or posted in over a week, I thought I'd share it with y'all.
