William F. Buckley dead at 82


Author, TV host, and master of polysyllabic acrobatics
William F. Buckley died Wednesday Feb. 27th
at his home in Stamford, Conn. He was 82.
William Buckley was the popular host of one of television’s
longest-running programs, “Firing Line,” and founded and
shepherded the influential conservative magazine “National Review.”
He also found time to write more than 50 books,
ranging from sailing odysseys to spy novels to dissertations
on harpsichord fingering to celebrations of his own dashing daily life.
He edited at least five more.
The more than 4.5 million words of his 5,600 twice-weekly newspaper columns, “On the Right,” would fill 45 more medium-sized books.He was found at his desk in the study of his home, his son said. “He might have been working on a column,”  .

Ronald Reagan once wrote of Buckley,

“You didn’t just part the Red Sea — you rolled it back,
dried it up and left exposed, for all the world to see, the naked desert that is statism,” Mr. Reagan said.“And then, as if that weren’t enough,” the president continued, “you gave the world something different,

something in its weariness it desperately needed,

the sound of laughter and the sight of the rich,

green uplands of freedom.”

Rest In Peace, William F. Buckley, dead at 82
