Thomas Sowell has it right.

The next time you hear some Hollywood-type - be it a talk show host, movie "star," or TV personality - talk about the disparity of riches in this country, ask them how much of their paycheck they'd personally be willing to give up so that - let's say - inner-city school music teachers could take home more money.

Oprah can talk about the horrible plight of AIDS-stricken Africa all she wants (and I agree that it is a terrible thing), but is she really going to sell her multi-million dollar homes (including her Hawaiian getaway) and live the simple life in some Chicago suburb? I don't think so.
