Sixteen years ago today, I lost my father after a sudden onset of cancer.  Last night, the modern conservative movement lost its father.  In both cases, the legacy will survive long past the loss, and we all will thrive, having been made richer in the knowing.  My prayers and thoughts are with the Buckley family today and with my friends at National Review.
