Bob Herbert, for many years the only regular Black columnist on the New York Times‘ op-ed page (and hey, what's up with that, progressives??? - ed.), has written his last column before stepping down.I don't really care what color he is -- to wit, my very favorite columnist is Thomas Sowell -- but Bob Herbert's column space was always worse than a waste. It would have been better had it just been however many column spaces of blank space. Hey Paul & Maureen ... wouldn't you like to golf for the rest of your lives? Think about it. Bob's already got the tee times lined up.
If the NYT wants a real, thoughtful black columnist, it should consider picking up Sowell.
