Police Brutality in Nirvana or Does Life Carry a 24 Thousand Mile Warranty?

This is Jean Shepherd's second piece for Grump, a fact which pleases me immensely, as I have long been a Shepherd Fan. Jean is one of our most cogent, contemporary philosophers, a man who writes and talks about the Way Things Are, not about the way things should be. In an age devoutly dedicated to cant, he remains uncommitted to any sort of moral, political or emotional PermaThink, and his radio show on WOR in N.Y. (six nights a week at 10:15) is, in my opinion, the most consistently entertaining program on AM, FM, UHF or TV. Jean is also a regular contributor to Playboy, an actor, a sports car nut, a former ball player and the author of a fine book published last October by Doubleday called, "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash." . . .
