Since we’re reminiscing about the Great Man, Byron York in an Atlantic piece described WFB’s first visit to the American Spectator’s first offices in the early 70s:
The Alternative had its headquarters in a farmhouse outside Bloomington that was known as The Establishment, where visitors who came to meet the magazine’s staff would spend the night. It was a notably downscale experience; the rooms were a wreck and the bathroom was in the hideous, scum-brown condition common in some college quarters. “Pat Moynihan and Bill Buckley both had the same reaction when they walked in there,” Von Kannon recounted in a 1980s magazine article. “They walked right back out and took a leak off the front porch.”
