Leonard Pitts writes an opinion column for the Miami Herald. Once a week his columns appear in our local paper. They are “must read” for my wife and I. Pitts won the Pulitzer Prize in 2004, so we are not the only ones who think that. His opinions on race, politics and culture are always thoughful and thought-provoking. Pitts is also a fabulous writer. Reading his columns makes me a better writer. You won’t find a better writer out there than Leonard Pitts. Different, but not better.

Columnist Leonard Pitts, Jr.

Today was better than usual because Pitts is writing about something I have tried to express before but failed, which is the reason why I don’t feel the need to prove God exists scientifically. It’s because there are lots of things that are real that cannot be proven scientifically. It’s the wrong approach.

But don’t take my bad prose for it. Read his column for yourself.
