THIS WEEK: Gore Vidal - The Fall of the United States (interview). At the end of WWII, the U.S. emerged as a global power with unprecedented wealth and advantages. Most of that has been squandered. We’ve gone from number one creditor nation to number one debtor. The signs of decay are everywhere but Washington politicians from both parties largely avoid talking about it.

He died on July 31, 2012.
