Requiem for wordsmith

R.I.P. William F. Buckley, 1925-2008.

You're no doubt up there fighting the good fight, using words that would make even Noah Webster consult a dictionary.

I bought one of his word-a-day calendars in the 90s and tried to incorporate each day's word into everyday conversation. That lasted about a week.
