A reader writes and asks "Who is Flick?" Referring, of course, to the title at the top of this very page which, under "Glib & Superficial" states "Flick Lives."
Googling "Flick Lives" will lead one to a long, long list of websites concerned with Jean Shepherd. There is here neither time nor space to explain who Jean Shepherd is. Let me put it this way: If one were to cross Mark Twain and George Ade, on the one hand, with Charlie Mingus and Stan Kenton, on the other, one would produce Shepherd.
A sign, Shep would say, of my misspent youth, lurking in the darkness.
One may listen to a short montage HERE.
