Callow rhymes with shallow


Every now and then, a letter to the editor contains a nugget of insight. One John Ramsey of Lewisville, Texas writes today to the Dallas Morning News “If Steve Jobs had spent his youth protesting against rich people instead of trying to become one, our lives would be all the poorer for it.” Mr. Ramsey understands Adam Smith and Friedrich Hayek quite well.
I didn’t spend my youth protesting, but I attended a number of the late ‘60 and early ‘70 protests. My motivation, like most of the other 20 something males I suspect, was not the cause du jour. It was simply that the females who attended were generally, shall we say, less inhibited about certain things than their more conservative sisters. Callow, of course, rhymes with shallow.

My day job is assisting individuals and small businesses as a lawyer. I taught real estate law and American history in the Dallas County Community College system. I have owned and operated private security firms and was a police officer and criminal investigator for the Dallas Police Department.

I am interested in history and historical research, music, cycling, and British mysteries and police dramas.

I welcome comments, positive, negative, or neutral, if they are respectful.
