Professor Williams was a true legend among U.S. newspaper columnists. I started reading his Sunday columns in The Cincinnati Enquirer in the 1970s or early 1980s. My dad "suggested" that I read Walter Williams when I was in high school. My dad's "suggestions" were often more than just suggestions. Thus, I began a decades-long habit of reading – and enjoying – Walter Williams' words of wisdom. To say he will be missed, is akin to saying freedom will be missed. He was that good.

    Ladies and gentlemen, over the past two offerings, we’ve beheld Thanksgivings and “Black Fridays” of yore, and now that we’ve had our first snowfall of the season, let’s look ahead (or back?) to Christmas.

    The Buckeye Institute has released a new policy brief, "Weathering the Storm: Budgeting for Prosperity in a Time of Crisis," which outlines sound, fundamental economic principles that – if followed – can save the state more than $4 billion and put Ohio in a better position to weather and recover from the fiscal storm brought about by COVID-19.

  • More children deserve a place to call home

    States spend very little of their foster care budget (which is a mix of state and federal dollars) on recruiting and retaining foster parents. They more often spend money on administrative costs that have little to do with children’s outcomes or the quality of service they provide.

  • Vaccine advancements offer hope

    2020 has been an incredibly difficult year. As we celebrate the holidays, let’s enjoy the season without becoming complacent. COVID-19 is still very much with us, but advancements on the vaccine front offer a brighter future.

    I looked toward Greg and could see that he was making steady progress with his backfill endeavors. Need I tell you that we did not meet in the middle at all? Greg never said a word, except to let me know, with a smile, that I was an excellent stomper.

  • We are entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – nothing more
    Saturday, November 28, 2020 9:12 AM
    I think the word “entitled” stirs up so much ill will and bad feelings among people, societies and nations that we should ban it and the concepts it stands for. It is a word that came into widespread use in the 20th century.
