James Q. Wilson RIP

A monumental conservative intellectual and social scientist has passed away. I saw him not long ago at a tribute dinner at AEI, where George Will and Charles Murray toasted him beautifully. He was a wonderful, generous, open, and fiercely rigorous-minded intellectual who helped guide countless people in and out of the conservative movement and mainstream academia. And: a National Review contributor.

I think we’ve had enough death this week.
