I try not to go national very often, but every twice in a while someone writes something of significance and importance. In this case, it is a brief column written by Renaissance man, and all-round nice guy, Ben Stein. It is entitled â€œOil is Wellâ€, and can be read in itâ€™s entirety at the following url:
The beauty of Steinâ€™s column is not only the timeliness, but also the simple way â€“ in laymanâ€™s terms â€“ that he describes free markets using the Oil Industry (that would be the â€œawl bidnessâ€ for those of you in Texas) as an example.
If you have any thinking children, this might be a good time to sit down with them, over a cup of hot cocoa, and explain the economic facts of life using this column as a tool.
If you know some young person who has yet to be poisoned by Leftists, a printed copy of Steins piece might inoculate him.
When I finished reading it, I let out a long sigh and thought, â€œThanks Ben!â€
