This is a sad day. A great man has passed from the scene. We will not see his like again in this life.

William F. Buckley Jr. needs no introduction regardless of your political persuasion and his passing is a loss to all Americans. Many will pay tribute to the founder of modern American conservatism over the next few days and weeks but I thought this sentiment, posted this morning on NRO, to be just about right:

"I am saddened by the passing of William F. Buckley, but our loss is Heaven's gain, and I'm sure the Good Lord told his angels to "Bring me a dictionary, Buckley's coming."

May he rest in peace.
