William Buckley

Most everyone has posted on this already, I've been busy so I'll just link to a friend of mine's post on it.
[I think of the great quote: "Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people." WFB was not a great mind, he was a titanic mind. Colossal. The sphere of his comprehension knew no fixed radius. He was a man of culture and letters, a sportsman and musician, a socialite and a committed Catholic -- all while leading the conservative charge for 50+ years. I began subscribing to National Review almost ten years ago, attracted primarily by his wit and wisdom. His congenial relations with his fiercest of critics is the model we should all hope to attain. God Bless you WFB. Thanks for being the embodiment of the RIGHT way of living. -Biz]
