A champion of liberty, reason, common sense, and sanity has died–and will be sorely missed.
Walter Williams, long-time professor of economics at George Mason University, conservative commentator and reliable voice of reason, 84 years old, died this morning. His final column, “This tragedy in Black education is new,” was published today (https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/williams-this-tragedy-in-black-education-is-new).
This is a loss to America. We’ll all have to work a little harder, without him.
I always enjoyed his guest host spots on Rush Limbaugh’s radio program, especially when he was joined by his friend and colleague, Dr. Thomas Sowell. When you listened to these two, you listened to wisdom. Besides which, Dr. Williams’ humor and good cheer was always refreshing.
The best memorial we can give him is to preserve our constitutional republic.
