W-Hef-B

James Rosen has a thoughtful column on Buckley’s seemingly odd relationship with Hugh Hefner and Playboy magazine: 

At his father’s memorial service in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, in April, Christopher Buckley took special note of his father’s odd relationship with Playboy, proudly reminding the assembled that WFB had closed out his landmark 1970 interview with the words: “I know that my Redeemer liveth.” “Only Pop,” Christopher smiled, “could manage to get the Book of Job into a Hugh Hefner publication.” 

The whole thing is interesting.
