Standing In The Gap Of The Real And Perceived

Woody Allen And William Buckley Winking At Each Other In 1967


 

Very interestingly, recorded before Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination. Allen had a trademark answer to the Jewish/Palestinian question after the Six Day War. He and Buckley were obviously a great match, and unlike the typical left-right exchanges of today, with the possible exception of the matchups between Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly, they showed as much respect for one another as they did disagreement. To be sure, though, neither Stewart or O’Reilly has the talent or intellect of Allen or Buckley.

Now it’s your turn. What does the above conversation say to you, the reader, 45 years later? Are we better off? Worse? Chime in, please!
