Leaving soon to attend Dodgers-Mets game in NYC with the estimable Robert Jay Lifton (my co-author on two books and many articles). Back in the 1980s and 1990s we made this a nearly annual event, but now a few years have passed. Robert is huge Dodgers fan--having grown up in Brooklyn--and has (and needs) a keen sense of humor, despite the nickname recently bestowed on him by the NYT, "Dr. Hiroshima." (Could have been worse, I guess: "Dr. Nazi Doctors'?) Actually for many years he signed his notes to me simply "Lasorda." My photo at left, from right field.
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
