I just want to take a moment to mark the passing of William F. Buckley, one of the most influencial and prolific journalists of our time. We bloggers are heavily in debt to Buckley’s fast-paced style of writing and publishing. Buckley was an editor, columnist, novelist, debater, TV talk show host, and he found the magazine “National Review” while producing over 50 books. He was a man who got things done!
He was decidedly right-wing, eventhough he came to fame during a period in U.S. history that grew more and more liberal every day. He once defended Joseph McCarthy when it was an extremely unpopular thing to do. But remember, friends, that without someone standing up and opposing the overwhelming majority, free speech does not work.
