Fire of Liberty
As a conservative, my heart is saddened with the passing of William F Buckley Jr. this morning. My deepest sympathies go out to the family and friends of this great man. I'm somewhat saddened that want be around to inform and pontificate on the important issues of the day, but as with life you're valued on what you have done and the impact it has had on others. I believe Buckley will be missed but not forgotten due to the plethora of work, which included the writing of some 40 books, the establishment of National Review(still running strong since 1955), his long running syndicated column, a run for mayor of New York, and his hosting of Firing Line(one of the longest serving program on TV), and countless debates and speeches. All in all, the conservative movement(As well as America) has lost one of its greats and it would be in our best if we took some time and reflect on his contributions and how the ideas and arguments that he put forward in his works are still essential and needed even more within conservatism. So Rest in Peace dear soul and enjoy your stay in Heaven.
