Looking for Fr. Neuhaus, or...

...they sure named this Institooshun after the right guy. I remember watching Fr. Neuhaus on Firing Line way back when, mostly in the 80's. So I went looking through the Hoover Institution's Firing Line archives and found him. Well, I didn't actually find him, but rather proof that Hoover had him hidden away in there somewhere. There are over 1500 fully archived Firing Line episodes, of which a mere 400 are available for viewing or purchase (any online streaming limited to 5 minutes). Father Neuhaus was in a bunch, but not a one is available for "viewing or purchase." Not one. I especially wanted this one. I remember it. It was a good one, filmed not too long after the publication of The Naked Public Square. Too bad. Thanks for nothing.

The Firing Lines are coming online on Amazon.com (I think there's about 80 or so now...the latest just came online a month ago so maybe sooner or later Novak's appearance will be available.

Thanks for hunting that up, TS. They've got a long way to go, but it's a start. I notice the Muggeridge interviews are available, which I'd recommend.
