Art Levine: Coffeeshop Conversation #153 OMN's National Editor has a new book!

By TOM D'ANTONI // OMN's National Editor has a shocking new book out "Mental Health, Inc.". And, of course we'll talk music too.

World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan has been closed for over a week for renovations, but by the time you hear this it’ll be open again. While they were closed I thought it would be a good idea to call upon OMN’s National Editor, Art Levine and find out what’s going on with him.

He’s in Washington, D.C. so we’re Skyping this one. He hasn’t been writing for us very much lately because he has been working on his new book, Mental Health, Inc. “How corruption, lax oversight and failed reforms endanger our most vulnerable citizens.”

Yeah, it’s not a book about music. 

But there is a music and even an OMN connection to the book. We’ll start with that. But with Art, you never know where things will go from there.

We’ve been friends since 1970, so you know how that goes.

Here is the OMN story Art and I talked about.

Here is the first time Art did an OMN Coffeeshop Conversation, not long after we launched them in May of 2016

Here is Art's Newsweek story on mass shootings and mental illness.
