Celebrating Yogi Berra
Before I shut down and get some shut-eye, I wanted to recommend this NYT article about the ineffable Yogi Berra, who at 83 threw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium yesterday and is apparently as lively as ever. What a charming character he must be. And just my size. He's one of those people you think you know even though you've never met him, he's become such an American icon. I would love to visit the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center at Montclair State U. in New Jersey. Even better, I think, would be to talk to the man. He seems like somebody preserved largely to restore one's faith in humanity.
