R.I.P., William F.

William F. Buckley has passed away at the age of 82. He was hard not to like, for me anyway. While most people considered him terribly stiff and boring (and oh so friggin’ conservative), I found his ability to extemporaneously deconstruct arguments to be inspiring. And he raised “leaning back” to an art form.

His position that abortion is not a legal issue and therefore should not be permitted or not-permitted by law impacted me on many levels, and I’ve more than once paused and appreciated him for that.

As I do today.
