William F. Buckley Jr. Is Dead at 82

From Maria,
William F. Buckley Jr. Is Dead at 82

Back in my childhood I always found him amusing. The old guy with the huge vocabulary, who was able to debate anyone without rasing his voice. And he always looked like an old Oscar Werner, too.
(Of couse, WFB would not approve of the run-in sentence).

Once I left my liberal ways, I recognized WFB's contribution to the American conservative movement.

NRO has an excellent tribute here.

I'm sure the Good Lord told his angels to "Bring me a dictionary, Buckley's coming."

Digg!

Sad, isn't it? I wrote about him earlier today. I really liked the quote I cited from The Corner - where God said, "Bring me a dictionary, Buckley's coming." He will be missed.
