Comfortably numb

TV Guide: What is TV's greatest need? 

Gore Vidal: A sense that getting people to buy things they do not need is morally indefensible. One does not ask for Utopia, only a slightly less frantic exploitation of the innocent. 

From the May 9, 1964 issue. It's not often that I find myself agreeing with Gore Vidal, at least not politically, but in this case I can't possibly find myself disagreeing.  TV

  1. Gore Vidal was all over the place politically. He managed of PO both right and left (I can relate). He did write some interesting books. I don't I ever finished one.


Thanks for writing! Drive safely!
