More Moments of Silence

Many thanks to Jim for remembering Molly Ivins this week. I've been a fan for years, and the Tribune Op-Ed page is a darker place without her.

Along the same line of thought, we should also remember some members of the baseball fraternity who have moved beyond the mortal plane recently:

Milwaukee Braves World Series hero Lew Burdette

Steve Barber, the Orioles' first 20 game winner

Max Lanier, WWII-era Cardinals starting pitcher

Ray Berres, second-oldest Major Leaguer

Art Fowler, pitching coach for the "Bronx Zoo" Yankees

Our sincere sympathies to the families and friends of these men.
