Tackling Freakonomics

Langston Walker is 6-foot-8 and 345 pounds. He majored in economics at Cal. He plays football now for the Oakland Raiders.

He said this in a recent Sacramento Bee article:

“I bring a book for the plane ride,” Walker said. “Something that’s educational, something that will expand my mind.”

Such talk causes running back Justin Fargas to ask Walker, “Are you serious?”

Walker is very serious about reading. The last book he finished before leaving for Baltimore was “Freakonomics,” an alternative look at economics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner.
