R.I.P.: Walter Williams

Walter Williams: Focus on police obscures black tragedy - The  Virginian-Pilot - The Virginian-Pilot

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.

  1. I begin to see something here ~ very good folks who are dying or who have died while the wicked flourish like the green bay tree. Perhaps God is sparing them what is to come if this current “election” is allowed to be legitimized. Well, we’ve legitimized killing the innocent in the womb or who are crippled or sick, so why not legitimize killing our country? It makes sense after all.

  2. Oh, no! What a brilliant mind, and what a legacy he leaves. But we’ll be diminished without him.
    Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

  3. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. (2 Timothy 4:7-8)

  4. When I was in the MBA/JD graduate program at Temple University, Dr. Williams was my macroeconomics professor. He frequently presented out-of-the-box questions to us to make us think. Some of us who thought we were smart enough to give him “the” answer were quickly shot down with his “Okay. But what it…” – lol. He was a brilliant teacher. Talked a lot. Told lots of stories. Very entertaining and funny. Missed him when he left Temple. Miss him now. RIP Dr Williams…
