Vidal's speech, where the au-
thor was quizzed on his famous
feuds, his attitudes on mar-
riage and, again, politics.
"What's it like to know
you're on TV and that 40 million
people are watching you?" one
Swomen asked. Mike Wallace
and the film crew of "60 Min-
utes" were filming during the
luncheon.
"IT'S BLISS," Vidal replied.
"Just me, the camera, and my
ego."
And, inevitably, someone
asked, "Can't you resist putting
down other peonle who don't
agree with you? When will you
respect other people's opin-
ions?"
"You put a finger on my weak
spot," Vidal answered cheer-
fully. "I go out into the world
only to haye my prejudices con-
firmed. That makes me differ-
ent from all of you."
