|Summary||A fast-paced installment of the semi-annual turnabout, with three Firing Line regulars grilling their host. Topics range from economics to AIDS to arms control, and more. One sample: WFB: "How, in fact, do you move against a GNP that gives 23.7 per cent of its income to federal spending unless you can do something about entitlements, over which Reagan has no control whatsoever?" MK: "Well, he's been President of the United States for eight years. If Ronald Reagan wasn't going to take on entitlements, who ever will?" WFB: "Well, he can have a coup d'etat, and do away with the House of Representatives, and do something about entitlements."|
