Christopher Buckley’s Eulogy for his Father

NRO has Christopher Buckley’s eulogy for his father up. I particularly like this bit:

He was — inarguably — a great man. This is, from a son’s perspective, a mixed blessing, because it means having to share him with the wide world. It was often a very mixed blessing when you were out sailing with him. Great men always have too much canvas up. And great men set out from port in conditions that keep lesser men — such as myself — safe and snug on shore.

Update: They also have the eulogy given by Henry Kissinger up.
