On the passing of John Kenneth Galbraith (1908-2006), I'll just mention that he was the only guest I ever saw on Firing Line who made William F. Buckley visibly insecure (all the stranger because the two were friends.) Usually it was Buckley who would assume a superior, condescending posture toward his guests, causing them to scrape and scramble for some way toward the rhetorical high ground. Not so with Galbraith, who slouched his ginormous frame into the chair opposite Buckley and held forth while barely glancing in Buckley's direction for the entire episode, while Buckley simpered and stuttered.

I miss Firing Line.
