Requiescat In Pace
Sad news. William F. Buckley has died.
How I wish we had public affairs programming as great as Firing Line was. I truly consider that program a gift from Mr. Buckley to me. As a tween and teen in the 80's, even as I was being formed by other forces into a Black Nationalist Marxist, I always enjoyed "Firing Line" and looked forward to watching every week. I suppose in some way it helped keep me from going completly of the deep (Left-wing) cliff.
I only hope there is something similar around when my son is the same age.
