I enjoyed reading The True Believer a good 25+ years ago; still have a copy sitting on the shelf. Maybe I need to check out his other books.

I do too JMP. My Dad gave it to me. I need to read some of the rest. Do you remember our local Chicago knock off of a sorts: Mike Lavelle? He did a column with the Trib. I have two posts on him here. His sons commented on them. Lavelle's buried up at the Milwaukee Veterans cemetery.
