J.B. Opdyke, a teammate on the Michigan soccer team 20+ years ago, recently sent me a book he edited, called Talk/Talk. It is, as I mentioned in a review, “a compilation of talking heads talking about the talk of talking heads they (that is, the talking heads featured in Talk/Talk) watched on Sunday TV talk shows.”

But it’s also a nice, polemic-free route into the thought processes of two of the independent movement’s leading lights, Jackie Shalit and Fred Newman. The review, posted on The Hankster, is here.
