    OUT OF TOUCH, OUT OF MIND This book is fantastic I would say it should be a Best Seller, the book touches on many serious issues we are faced with even today. Mr. Minerd has presented journalism in the best way and on such a professional level I would want to think this book is a form of great journalism as he writes about events that occurred back in the 60's and 70's along with his days at South High School and sharing many of his own memories. Rick also talks about his careers for instance, a Disc Jockey for local radio stations here in Columbus, Ohio when radio was a very big deal and our DJ's were "Celebrities" to many of us teens growing up back then. Then becoming a Chief of Police/Marshal of a town called Obetz, Ohio, retiring from there and now is a Author,of many good books including this one. Although he has slowed down taking care of his two beautiful bulldog pups, (whom he has dedicated this book to Dee Jaye and Jessie) yet he tells a few secrets of his past, he... More > still continues to enlighten us with many wonderful memories of growing up in the 50's, 60's and 70's. This book touches on a time when there was racism, Vet Nam War, Kent State, the assassination of our 35th President, John F. Kennedy, to politics then watching an area in Columbus, Ohio deteriorate right before his eyes, yet he still remains a resident of German Village as he never gave up on the "Old Neighborhood" and now that he is older and slowing down he only wants to remain there, in the home his father purchased back the 1950's when he was just a young lad and just live out his remaining years in a peaceful area he grew up in. Journalism at its finest, yes indeedy, thank you Sir, for another fabulous book, you keep educating us with your writings, which I might add is an extra bonus I think it makes a person use their brains which I like and we, your readers, will keep reading.
