William Safire

Oct 1, 2009

William Safire The political columnist and unofficial keeper of the English language, William Safire, died this past Sunday at the age of 79. Eight years ago, just after 9-11, we had a wide-ranging conversation with him in front of a live audience at Spirit Square. The then recent attacks shaped our discussion as did his book on The New Language of Politics. We revisit our conversation with William Safire.
