So long, Gore Vidal
I thought that this was worth mentioning here.

In Memoriam: Gore Vidal, atheist, humanist, intellectual

"Great American intellect and freethinker Gore Vidal is dead. Vidal, 86, celebrated writer, cultural critic, atheist and honorary president of the American Humanist Association, died of pneumonia at his Hollywood Hills home on Tuesday, July 31."

Buckley v. Vidal 1968 was pugilism at its best. I was 6 yo when I first watched this. Big Grin




Any promise of a postmortem preservation of personal identity is preposterous. (read in Daffy Duck voice)

Oh yea - I remember that too! I didn't understand as a kid, but as an adult, it's freakin' hilarious! I love that crazy smile on Vidal's face... he realized he really pushed Buckley's button there... fucker was a nazi. Thumbsup

Somebody sent me the Lily Tomlin thing with her doing the "operator", from back then. Was the Mr. Viddle, in the skit, supposed to be Gore Vidal ?
