William F. Buckley, founder of National Review and the father of modern American conservatism died a few days ago. While I no longer subscribe to National Review (as a cost-cutting measure, not through any dislike of the magazine), I am saddened to hear of his passing. I’ve only read four of his books, but I enjoyed them all thoroughly and his name has been a constant presence on that mental “To Read” list that bibliophiles all have.
