To mark his 80th birthday, National Review Online has been running online some vintage columns by their founder, William F. Buckley, Jr. Online today is his 1987 column criticizing then Senator Lowell Weicker's congressional resolution calling for the Titanic to be off-limits from salvage. It was this column that led to him being invited by Ifremer to dive on the wreck in the 1987 expedition which he later wrote about in a fascinating New York Times Magazine piece.
