William F. Buckley Jr. (1925-2008)  —  I'm devastated to report that our dear friend, mentor, leader, and founder William F. Buckley Jr., died this morning in his study in Stamford, Connecticut.  —  He died while at work; if he had been given a choice on how to depart this world, I suspect that would have been exactly it.
Hillel Italie / Associated Press:
William F. Buckley Jr. dies at 82  —  NEW YORK - William F. Buckley Jr., the erudite Ivy Leaguer and conservative herald who showered huge and scornful words on liberalism as he observed, abetted and cheered on the right's post-World War II rise from the fringes to the White House, died Wednesday.
Rick Perlstein / Today's Ideas & Actions:
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.

Disturbed About Obama  —  I thought Terri Schiavo was a jarring presence at the debate last night.  When Senator Obama was asked what legislative regrets, he didn't try to walk away from his radical ways any by citing his votes against born-alive infant protection or against banning the transport …

Rove: Don't “Hussein” Obama  —  No less an authority figure than Karl Rove has warned Republican operatives from demagoguing Barack Obama's middle name.  —  At a closed door meeting of GOP state executive directors in late January, Rove said the safest way to refer to Obama would be to use his honorific, “Sen. Obama.”
