It's a sad day indeed. I don't even have the energy to go over to Huffington to see the hateful things they are most likely saying about him. No doubt the comments are closed over there, because that's how they hide what has actually been said. If you want you can look at the cached page on Google to see the comments.
William F. Buckley Jr., the erudite Ivy Leaguer and conservative herald who showered huge and scornful words on liberalism as he observed, abetted and cheered on the right's post-World War II rise from the fringes to the White House, died Wednesday. He was 82.
His assistant Linda Bridges said Buckley was found dead by his cook at his home in Stamford, Conn. The cause of death was unknown, but he had been ill with emphysema, she said.
I wish all of his loved ones the best.
