In support of Thomas Sowell

To the Editor:

In response to Pete, John and Pat [Mid Rivers Newsmagazine, Jan. 13 & 27], I look forward to Thomas Sowell’s article every week and view his insight to be clear and to the point. His writing style labeled as “predictable and sophomoric” by John are opinions just like what Mr. Sowell writes about. If anyone disagrees with his words, then skip the article and read the rest of the magazine!

Someone once said everything is local … even federal politics!

Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

I am writing to support having Thomas Sowell as your columnist. He makes sense and is just fine for me! I, for one, enjoy his columns.

As far as “unsupported statements” [“Viewpoints and politics,” Mid Rivers Newsmagazine, Jan. 27] … baloney. A man with his training as an economist has all the supporting data he needs to justify his statements.

I also consider him “moderate.” There are a lot more out there further to the right.

Opposing liberal/leftist viewpoints also are all around us, such as CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CNN for television and The New York Times as a newspaper example.

To the Editor: 

I am writing in response to Mr. Kamerud, who posted in the Jan. 27 edition of Mid Rivers Nesmagazine [Letters to the Editor].

It’s remarkable that this writer labels Thomas Sowell as predictable and sophomoric, with much hyperbole and unsupported statements. He then complains that Dr. Krauthammer [he apparently does not know his professional training] is predictably conservative, etc.

To this, I say that anyone referring to Dr. Sowell’s writings as sophomoric needs to justify that charge.

I would suggest that Mr. Kamerud consider the concepts of Dr. Sowell’s comments, and if he disagrees with them provide some justification for his position, rather than just use pejorative complaints.

The letter from Mr. Kamerud might be described using the same descriptors.

Thomas Sowell is a scholar with mature and well-considered thoughts.

Dr. Krauthammer is unlikely to change his political philosophy, so wishing otherwise makes no sense.

If the writer would like progressive writers in his magazines, I suggest he pay for a Post-Dispatch subscription, as he can find those there daily.

I’ve seen some criticism in the Mid Rivers Newsmagazine lately about the conservative slant of the paper and about the writing of Thomas Sowell, in particular.

Personally, I look forward to receiving the Mid Rivers Newsmagazine each week and the highlight for me is the article by Dr. Sowell.

It is nice to find a publication that isn’t completely infused with the “liberal slant.”

If I want the liberal take on local issues I’ll read the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I have to pay a subscription fee for the Post-Dispatch.  The Mid Rivers Newsmagazine is funded by advertisers.

Keep up the great work.

To the Editor:

I would like to voice my support for Thomas Sowell’s editorials. He is a breath of fresh air and common sense that has been lost in today’s news world. It has been measured 100 different ways that the main stream media is overwhelmingly liberal and in lock-step with the liberal Democrat party.  When was the last time you saw an article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about Hillary’s email scandal?  It doesn’t exist, because they ignore and, therefore, cover for the corrupt liberal politicians they side with.

I thought liberals were supposed to be all inclusive and compassionate? Here again they are trying to shut down any opinion that is different than theirs. I would suggest they read articles from both sides and form their own opinions.

I, for one, applaud Mid Rivers Newsmagazine for having Thomas Sowell as the feature editorial.
