WFB, 1925 - 2008

William F. Buckley Jr. has died.

I have been reading Bill Buckley's books and articles since college. My favorite is his first, God and Man at Yale which I think about often and have read at least twice. Also, he wrote a fabulous forward to what I think is the gold-standard for autobiographies, Witness by his friend Whittaker Chambers.

His wit, intelligence, poetic writings and grciousness towards those who he disagrees with will be sorely missed.
