William F. Buckley, Jr., R.I.P.  —  Our revered founder, William F. Buckley Jr., died in his study this morning.  —  If ever an institution were the lengthened shadow of one man, this publication is his.  So we hope it will not be thought immodest for us to say that Buckley has had more of an impact …

Why William F. Buckley Was My Role Model  —  William F. Buckley was my friend.  —  I'm hard on conservatives.  I get harder on them just about every day.  I call them “con men.”  I do so without apology.  And I cannot deny that William F. Buckley said and did many things over the course of his career that were disgusting as well.
