Death of a Conservative Great


I wish the Helms family peace, and I thank Jesse Helms for helping to ensure the election of Ronald Reagan, being a warrior against the Soviet Union and for the release of Soviet Jews and other abused minorities, and being a voice for millions of unborn babies. 

I have noticed some of the smears lobbed at William Buckley in other places since his death; Jesse Helms is in for even more of it.  Other prominent conservatives will face the same.  Unfortunately, such is the nature of these things now.
