William F. Buckley, Jr. passed away today at the age of 82. Buckley is considered by many to be the father of today's conservative movement. He advanced conservatism through his magazine, National Review (I am a proud subscriber), countless books, columns, and his TV show "Firing Line" using humor, an extensive vocabulary and superior intellect. has a good obit for Buckley and there's a lot of great tributes on Allow me share one quote, from the New York Times:
I am, I fully grant, a phenomenon, but not because of any speed in composition. I asked myself the other day, `Who else, on so many issues, has been so right so much of the time?' I couldn't think of anyone.

I can't either.
