A May Note

In preparation for brief remarks I’ll be making at Heritage tomorrow, I was reading Lee Edwards’s new book on our beloved WFB this morning. Specifically I noticed Lee’s mentioned that Bill “loved Our Lady.” I mention this, not only because it’s a lovely book — most especially for anyone looking for a primer on Mr. Buckley. But I also mention it because I posted earlier asking for Fatima advice and am moved by the number of readers who have asked me to pray for them and their families while I’m there before the cruise next week. I will — for all of our dear readers and friends. For good health, good will, a love of truth, and for our country.
