Current TV journalist need to watch this show to see how intelligent discussion
should be conducted. You talk I listen (without interrupting every second) I talk
you listen. It was a pleasant listen. Enjoy!

I love this interview for the fact that Truman is allowed to speak his mind and also explain why he has the opinions that he speaks about. For not having been to college, as Buckly suggests, Capote is very philosophical and intelligent in a way that is usually cultivated through the college experience. I also tend to agree with his opinion on capital punishment, and that someone needs to take the bull by the horns and just fix what is not working, and not pussyfooting around the issue to avoid hurting someone's feelings.

Insightful discussion. The rapport between Buckley and Capote improves considerably after a slightly prickly start. The contrast in personalities and in speech makes for plenty of color. This discussion offered subtle points of view on the subject of capitol punishment. Most worthwhile.

It doesn't get much better than this, with regard to civil discourse and intellectual discussion of ideas. . .Capote and Buckley are two great minds...sharing, debating. ...and all with respect shown for each other. We are lacking this type of dialogue in today's society. This is well worth watching.
