After a long career of being the voice of great wisdom and knowledge Hoover Institute’s Thomas Sowell has penned his last column and is entering retirement from his strong commentary career as a libertarian conservative. Well deserved retirement for Mr. Sowell, but his voice will be missed…
“Even the best things come to an end. After enjoying a quarter of a century of writing this column for Creators Syndicate, I have decided to stop,” the 86-year-old wrote in his column titled, “Farewell.”
Mr. Sowell said he made the decision to retire from writing and focus more on his photography after taking a much-need hiatus from following politics.
“During a stay in Yosemite National Park last May, taking photos with a couple of my buddies, there were four consecutive days without seeing a newspaper or a television news program — and it felt wonderful,” he wrote. “With the political news being so awful this year, it felt especially wonderful.”
Have a wonderful life, Sir. And thank you!
