RIP: William F. Buckley Jr. (1925-2008)
The father of the modern conservative movement, the founder of the most influential conservative magazine (National Review), has died today. It is truly a sad time for me because I grew up reading his columns and his philosophy and writings have been a major influence on my life. We have lost a true legend today.
I’m devastated to report that our dear friend, mentor, leader, and founder William F. Buckley Jr., died overnight in his study in Stamford, Connecticut.
After year of illness, he died while at work; if he had been given a choice on how to depart this world, I suspect that would have been exactly it. At home, still devoted to the war of ideas.
Thank you Mr. Buckley for all you did for me and everyone else who grew up reading your works.
