  5. What if the motorist has an iPod hitched up to the stereo?
    Does that mean he can hear more than one that hasn't? :o)

    Heinrich Boll wrote an excellent short story in which a radio-station editor collects all the taped silences cut out of studio interviews. He edits them together into a tape so he can listen to silence.

    If this fictional character (Murke) played his tape of collected silences on an iPod while driving, would he still be able to make a literary point about the post-war generation gap as reflected in attitudes to religion and society in post-war West Germany?

    I think this is the question we should be addressing, not the one in the title of the thread.

    I hope I have helped, but I fear I may not have.
