Meet Dr. Walter E. Williams

My friends, if you have a few moments to reflect of what life it and what it should be, take the time to read an interview of a fine gentleman by the name of Walter E. Williams, at:

He is a modern renaissance man, in spite of being black (that is not surprising to me and I mention it for reference only). He has, if you will forgive the expression, ‘his shit together’ and attributes that to teachers who didn’t care about ‘self-esteem’ the way it is viewed today. They looked at self-esteem as something a person earned, not something that everybody should be given. (That is how it should be, in this man’s opinion.)

He is, among many other things, the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University. I came to know him from his stints as a guest host on Rush Limbaugh’s radio program. Don’t let that put you off, if you are not a fan of Rush’s, Dr. Williams’ is a unique personality that has earned, not only his self-esteem but the respect of his peers in academia and the economic world.

I am sure that I cannot do him the justice that he merits, so judge for yourself. The interview is at: and his personal webpage is at: Don’t miss his biography there, at:
I don’t think you will be disappointed in knowing him.
