Have you seen the new documentary about them, "Best of Enemies"? It was the most entertaining movie of the year - brilliantly done.

Noooo, I'd probably like it! On which channel did it air?

You'll never find this sort of civilized, intelligent discourse anymore, which is sad. Our entire culture is so dull and crass that it makes such things impossible.

I saw it in a theatre a month or so ago. It's still in limited release it looks like - here are the places showing it (and scheduled to show it): http://www.magpictures.com...

To be fair, Buckley did call Vidal a queer and threatened to punch him, but he was still 10x classier than Rush Limbaugh, which really says something.
