Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

Same here. i was saddened to know that when he retired last month (?) that we would not be hearing from him again except for maybe special occasions, but to know now that even that will not be possible really points out what a loss this will be. His unique viewpoint and insight will be missed. My sympathies to his family and friends.

Cool to see his pic - didn't look like I expected, but I find that's almost always the case with radio folks.

I'm not a big sports person, but I always enjoyed his segments, which says a lot.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Somewhere, I still have Issue #1 (L.A. edition) of The National, his short-lived sports daily newspaper.



As good as he was as a commentator, he was even better as a sports writer.

I remember The National! We used to read it when I lived in Chicago.
