>  This is great news.  The first book to use the words ‘political  
> economy’ in the title to be published in the US since 1910.  
>  (Kidding!)  Seriously, when I suggested using the words ‘political  
> economy’ to describe media issues, I was called crazy.  And not for  
> the first time! Go figure.   You will be smarter for reading Bob’s  
> book.  Make sure your public library orders a copy.
