William F. Buckley Jr 1925-2008

William F. Buckley Jr died this morning in his study in Stamford CT.

There is an awesome chill that comes over you when someone of his stature and accomplishment for humanity passes from this world into the next. We don't depend on men, but we thank God for good men nonetheless.

NRO announced it here.

Watch a marvelous Firing Line exchange between Buckley and Noam Chomsky in 1969 over whether or not the US actions abroad constitute terrorism. They speak to our times.
