william f. buckley, jr., died one year ago today, february 27, 2008, at the age of 82. buckley was found by his son, christopher, at his desk in the study of his stamford connecticut home. he may have died while at work on his last column.
i was huge fan of william f. buckley (while not necessarily in much agreement with him) since my college days. i posted this brief summary of my interest in buckley, when i wrote about his memorial service. since his death i read buckley's final book, "the reagan i knew." the book was completed posthumously, and was one of my christmas presents. while i haven't had a chance yet, will eventually post a brief review.
rip william f. buckley.
