The master of conservative orthodoxy passed away overnight in Stamford, Connecticut. There are many obits around the web today (and tributes too – Rush Limbaugh opened his show and has been talking about Bill for nearly 15 minutes now).
The man was respected by many. He singlehandedly imprinted conservative thought onto the brains of millions (mine included).
Favorite Buckley quote? “I asked myself the other day, `Who else, on so many issues, has been so right so much of the time?’ I couldn’t think of anyone.”
