Dr. Sowell's "Random Thought on the Passing Scene" columns were the inspiration for my own sincere attempt to flatter him, my "Random Musings" posts. Here's some reaction to his retirement:
Townhall recalls twelve of Sowell's best quotes.
American Enterprise Institute has 18 quotes from Dr. Sowell.
Michelle Malkin just wants to express her gratitude.
And last but really first, The Daily Caller recalls Sowell's first column, in which he took on the belief, common in the 1970's, that a new ice age was on the way.
