William F. Buckley, Jr. died on February 27, 2008. This made me recall that I had advised him regarding a matter involving the news media, over 20 years ago. The project we were working on was confidential, and remains so. This is unfortunate, because it was interesting. Anyway, here’s a copy of a letter he sent me, once it was concluded. We continued to correspond irregularly thereafter.
I thought he was a genius, certainly one of the most articulate people I’ve ever met. Politically, I didn’t agree with him all that much. This doesn’t reduce my admiration for somebody who was so good at expressing complex thoughts, which (as it turns out) is a difficult task
