The current memorial issue in Bill’s honor is simply terrific. From its perfect cover and unprecedented table of contents, to Mark Steyn’s final page, the issue will inform, move, and delight our readers. I venture to say that WFB would have been pleased.

And, the artwork! So glad it is possible to get this as a single issue to savor.
