William F. Buckley, RIP
Posted by Gordon Smith

Busy day today, but I couldn't let it pass without some acknowledgment of William F. Buckley's death. I read a fair amount of Buckley's writing during college, law school, and for a few years thereafter. And I recently rediscovered him in reading George Marsden's The Soul of the American University: From Protestant Establishment to Established Nonbelief, which devotes a chapter to Buckley's God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of "Academic Freedom" (1951). Much has been written today about William Buckley, so I will offer only a simple tribute: my life would be poorer without him.
