In the wake of the Great Man's death so many good William F. Buckley stories are circulating and they comfort us and help us to keep the memory of WFB alive. Here's one that we heard this morning:
In 1970 WFB appeared on the popular Laugh In TV show and was asked by comic Henry Gibson: "Mr. Buckley, you are almost always shown seated. Does that mean you can't think on your feet?" And WFB replied: "No, it's just hard to stand up with the weight of all that I know."
