A word about William F Buckley (1925-2008)

Like many of you, I became a conservative because of Milton Friedman, Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan and William F. Buckley.

Today, we lost Buckley. (William F. Buckley Jr. Is Dead at 82)

In the mid 1970′s, many of us young conservatives were recovering from Watergate.

In my case, I found Buckley’s “Firing Line” show a wonderful place to see a conservative with wit, grace and a wonderful command of the language.   In fact, I would often jot down words and check them in the dictionary later.

Then I got hooked on his columns, National Review and some of his books. I must confess that I did not read most of Buckley’s books.  I did enjoy one called “Overdrive” from the early 80s.

Buckley’s legacy is National Review, the magazine and wonderful website, and all of us conservative bloggers.

Buckley was a pre-blog conservative. However, he certainly inspired all of us to blog conservative ideas.

WF Buckley had a wonderful life. Thanks for everything! Can you imagine the meeting in heaven tonight?  Reagan, Friedman, Goldwater and now Buckley!

We love you, Mr. Buckley!
