We are a nation of talkers. Everyone is talking--nonstop. We talk about everything, and about nothing, and we don't listen because we're too busy talking. Often the talking turns into shouting. Turn on your television and what do you get, talking heads. They talk about sports, politics, the weather, entertainment celebrities, and themselves. We now have what they call "talk radio."
