William Rusher, former publisher of NR, has died. 

In a 2009 interview, when he retired from his syndicated column, he told me: “I am an optimist. Conservatism is here to stay, and its analyses of political problems will continue to be our guiding light — and our winning strategy.”


May his optimism be his legacy.


God rest His soul. 


And thank you.
