William F. Buckley Jr

It was a long time ago, the late '60s when I got my first subscription to National Review

Back then as we all know there was no internet so the magazine deliverd to my door was a relief from the nonsense that permaniated the babble of the day.
Mr. Buckley brought conservatism a steady ideological intellect that challenged the left on every level.

He did it with suble humor and reason, qualities that I admire and fall short of emulating.

Not to mention his vast vocabulary that more than once sent me to the dictionary.

A good column, A Life Athwart History by George F. Will is a really good read.

Charlie Rose - An Appreciation of William F. Buckley

As always, well chosen words, and wisdom.
