Well, of a sort. I was going to post the Buckley-Vidal streetfight alone, but, well, William Buckley and the Hippies--what more could one ask? Can you imagine how drunk Buckley would have had to be to put up with this discussion? This looks to me like a doped version of Saturday Night Live's skit involving Betty White and PBS.

I just want the hulk or someone to burst in at the end, Blazing Saddles style, and start tapdancing. I am reliably informed that life at many minor seats of learning is very like this, but Buckley is admirably restrained throughout. I'd have gone nuts, and become mischievous.

'Are you a Hippie, Mr Sanders, and if not, wherein not?'
