Ivan and Boris Again by Thomas Sowell on National Review Online
Sheesh...I'm embarrassed to say that I've read books by Sowell, back when I was in the Libertarian Book Club. There are so many straw men in this piece, I don't know where to start. Easy to kick your opponent's ass when you make up an argument for him. *sigh* I'm glad I've grown up a little bit.
