Editorial Reviews

Taped on May 2, 1986. Part II of one of the best Firing Line debates. These are well-matched teams, which given the strength of Mr. Buckley's team is saying a lot about Messrs. Shanker, Starr, and Honig. Buckley opens the proceedings by talking about President Reagan's privatization efforts in general, but the debaters quickly home in on the schools: What effect would vouchers have on public schools? Would private schools be made to keep troublesome students? Could private schools, if they accepted voucher students, have any religious content? Two samples: Mr. Sowell: "As long as public schools are a monopoly, they will act as all monopolies act towards customers-with contempt." ... Mr. Starr: "I appreciate the subtle message of Mr. Buckley in staging this debate at a public institution which he, or at least Mr. Friedman, might wish to privatize, and which, if it were private, would have set a tuition high enough so that many of you here today could not have afforded to attend."

Always trenchant, always entertaining. William F. Buckley is an American institution whose absence from the public scene is keenly felt in the dismal quality of today's political commentary and discourse. It's a joy to remember how it once was and to hope it can one day be again.
