Despite the Politics – The Life of William Safire

October 5, 2009


Always with writing, one must look at the works and not the politics. Despite his very conservative politics and almost zealot support for Israel, William Safire was at heart a great American writer. We wrote many books and a column in the NY Times about words and politics. He was a staunch supporter of understanding the English language and what meaning everyday phrases we used. I can’t say I always agreed with him but I respect his writing and know that the world will miss his voice.
