Quote of the Day

From the March 14, 2008 Chronicle Review (The Death of a Conservative Icon):

“(Regarding William F. Buckley) Along the way, Buckley found time to launch the National Review, write thousands of nationally syndicated columns, run for mayor of New York—when asked what he would do if he won, he answered, “Demand a recount”—and tape 1,504 episodes of Firing Line.”
That’s productivity, right there, and I love the recount answer.

When you combine Buckley's death with the recent passing of Tim Russert, we've lost two pretty big names in journalism this year.
