Jan. 10, 1959: And we close the day with a lighthearted column from Matt Weinstock. A bit of poetry, an amusing story. Maybe one sentimental yarn. That’s what afternoon papers were all about. Features, news updates, late stock market reports and race results. Weinstock frequently wrote about bookies..
The column originally appeared in the L.A. Mirror in 1959 and was republished on latimes.com in 2009. It’s available at Archive.org.
