Yesterday, sorry I’m late, was the anniversary of the death of Michael Davies.
I knew him, not well, but well enough. He would come to Rome and I had some meetings and meals with him. I found him to be a true gentleman, zealous and cheerful, with whom you could have a real argument that remained cordial, though tough. I actually got him to change his mind on something and corrected himself!
His mortal remains are in Chistlehurst, south of London, at the same parish of a priest friend which was the first burial place of the French Emperor, before he was removed to Farnborough. I hope people are leaving flowers.
Meanwhile, here is a great video from 1980 on Firing Line. Listen and compare to today.
