I'm one of your liberal readers but have been thinking there must be some nice things to share.
I enjoyed very much your columns about Ernie Banks; I'm a bit older than you, though not much. My Dad took me to the new ballpark in San Francisco – Candlestick – and I got to see him play once.

I also got to see Willie Mays MANY times; if we need more proof that there is a God (not suggesting that we do), seeing Willie play should close the subject. Have you ever?
Your team, the Yankees: Given the unfortunate climate surrounding professional sports, I've always waited for the other shoe to drop re: Derek Jeter; there is no other shoe. What a classy guy. I hope he can get healthy enough to play again. A-Rod … no comment.
Hang in there. Our world has certainly changed in ways we could have not foreseen not too long ago.
