William F. Buckley remembered

A fine remembrance by Gary Wills in the Atlantic from a few months ago.

I agree with WFB on some things and disagree with him on others, but I enjoy his writing a great deal (the passages in his autobiography about giving speeches to student and business groups are delightful, as are his musings about early word processors) and I admire both his civility to opponents as well as the great joy he took in life.
