    I learned how to read chewing over the Mirror, Herald, and Times sports sections. Thanks guys. Ooops, forgot the comics with Ozark Ike too.


  2. One of the pleasures about trying to chronicle sports for the Daily Mirror was reading about LA in that wild time before the Dodgers came west. Ziff’s columns were a hoot. And what a photo!


  3. Oops, sorry Larry I did read the obit… have to love anyone who was called “The Pilot.”
