    The Era -- Day By Day

    The Bushwicks play into mid-October, usually, but after that, it's anybody's guess. Dodger football is a second-rate proposition with Ace Parker gone, and there will be no Brooklyn Americans hockey to take up space on the sports page, so I expect that Mr. Holmes and Mr. Parrott will have to keep...

    And in the Daily News... "JAIL BLONDE WAIF'S MOTHER -- SOON TO BE A MOTHER AGAIN." Some of these headlines could be country and western songs. I mean, what if DiMaggio runs headlong into a concrete wall? ""Course, you'll have to be trained by my chief drill sergeant -- Hey, Driftwood! Got...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    Baseball in the 1940s can be brutal both for the players and the fans. There's no second chance, no playoffs, no wildcard sneaking into the World Series thru a side door. If you don't finish first, you go home, and to have it end in a situation where you can win eight games in a row bringing it...

    Vintage Things That Have Disappeared In Your Lifetime?

    My first car was a '69 VW, and I was never unconscious, during the time I owned it, of the fact that it was 1930s technology. And when I got a 1941 Dodge, it was right back where I started from, except with a radiator, four doors, more room, and better running boards.
