Love him or hate him, you knew where he stood.
William F. Buckley, Jr. dies at age 82.
Why am I noting this, when so many other famous people have died since I started this blog? I’m not entirely certain. Mr. Buckley was always someone I preferred to read instead of watch, yet watching him, too, held a unique entertainment value that I have a hard time putting my finger on — rather like watching & listening to a very sly and highly intelligent Thurston J. Howell, III.
