Quote of the day - William Buckley [Willmoore Kendall, John Judis]

"[former NR editor Willmoore] Kendall wrote that he felt 'about National Review much as I would about an ex-wife of mine who'd become a call-girl.'"

Buckley's response ". . . and as to the reference you make to wives and call-girls, I can only welcome the news that you have finally learned to distinguish between the two."

from William F. Buckley, Jr., Patron Saint of the Conservatives, by John B. Judis, pp. 211-212.
