Firing Line Videos, Hoover Institution, taped on April 23, 1973, uploaded to YouTube on March 2, 2015.

Guest: Ernest F. Hollings


The spirited conversation with Senator Ernest F. Hollings–who strongly opposed the way the quasi-privatization of the Post Office had been done–ranges from permitting real competition in postal services, to the effect of poor postal service on the magazine industry, to the senator’s other preoccupation, welfare reform.
