Safire is what closes on Monday morning

As William Safire says goodbye to NY Times readers, I say goodbye to William Safire. It turns out I'll miss the big guy:

Safire might have had a moderating influence on the Right as Israel heads toward a showdown over the withdrawal from Gaza. It’s the same kind of influence Friedman wields whenever he reminds the Jewish Left that it’s not just a right-wing fantasy that the Arab world can be corrupt, fascistic, and indulgent toward terrorists.
