William F. Buckley, RIP
He was conservative before conservative was cool. In fact, he helped to make conservative cool. Yesterday morning, it was announced that William F. Buckley, the articulate commentator who energized modern conservative political thought, had passed away at age 82. Many tributes are being collected at the on-line site of the magazine he founded, National Review. WFB went beyond politics to be an articulate spokesman for his strong Catholic Faith. May his example inspire us who share his beliefs to carry on the fight with the same class and cheerfulness.
