Regarding Thomas Sowell

To the Editor: Are there other columnists available to your publication that can offer additional perspectives on political and social topics effecting our daily lives?

Thomas Sowell

Storm trooper tactics by bands of college students making ideological demands across the country, and immediate preemptive surrender by college administrators — such as at the University of Missouri recently — bring back memories of the 1960s, for those of us old enough to remember what it was like being there, and seeing first-hand how painful events unfolded.
