William F. Buckley Jr. Dies at 82

Sad news today, that the great conservative, William F. Buckley Jr., passed away this morning.

Buckley founded National Review; his TV show FIRING LINE ran for decades.

Rush Limbaugh: "One of the greatest Americans in our lifetimes, in three or four generations. I rank him as a Founding Father."

National Review Online has published a statement on Mr. Buckley's passing.

Update: A statement about Mr. Buckley issued today by President Bush.

Late Update: Click here for a cute cartoon at The Corner.

An NRO Symposium has remembrances from many conservative leaders, including William J. Bennett, Mark Levin, and Kate O'Beirne.
