William F. Buckley Jr. Rest In Peace
Charmaine and Bill Buckley, 2005 William F. Buckley Jr., died this morning in his study in Stamford, Connecticut.
He will be missed. Our prayers go to his family and his extended family at National Review.
Standing athwart history and yelling, Stop!
Only Bill Buckley could make a movement move by yelling “stop.”
Thank you (foot)notes:
My favorite Bill Buckley quote was concerning women in combat. He asked a liberal-lesbian-who-wanted-women-in-war-but-never-wanted-to-fight, “Is the phrase, ‘Women and Children First’ anachronized?” I didn’t know ‘anachronized’ was a word. But it must be, if Buckley said it…
