ON-Lion Letter
The March 24, 2008, issue of National Review magazine is almost entirely devoted to memorializing conservative icon William F. Buckley, Jr., who died in late February at the age of 82. 

In the special edition, scores of worthy tributes remember and honor Buckley as a husband and brother, a friend himself, a mainstay, a businessman, a dazzler, a gentleman, a monosyllabist, a candidate, an improviser, a star, a ski buddy, a boss, an egalitarian, a giver, a kingmaker, a music man, an editor, a leader, and a servant.

Many of the contributions are from friends of Buckley's who work at or are affiliated with organizations supported by Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, the underlying grantmaking philosophy of which is largely inspired by Buckley's thinking, too.

National Review's chairman and chief executive officer is Thomas L. Rhodes, who is also chairman of Bradley's Board of Directors.
