I’ve been privileged to interview some fascinating people over the years:
Lance Armstrong. Martina Navratilova. The Dalai Lama. Loretta Lynn. Jackie Robinson. Casey Stengel. Tony Blair at 10 Downing Street.
I petted Secretariat once. (Somebody smuggled a sugar cube or two, and Big Red rumbled over.)
On Thursday, Dec. 4, I will be talking about some of my favorite interviews, at the Amsterdam Harborside in Port Washington, Long Island, from 2-4 PM.
The Amsterdam Harborside is a residence high on a bluff overlooking Hempstead Harbor. I’m eager to see it myself.
I’ll be signing my World Cup book and a few other books of mine, courtesy of the Dolphin BookShop.

With the arrival of LED lighting, which costs so little to burn, every house has become an island of illumination, every city a blazing forest fire of artificial light. In my own backyard, it’s hard to enjoy the full moon because so many of our neighbors now leave their lights on all night long. And that’s without the holiday displays, each one bright enough to guide an airplane from the sky and land it safely in the middle of our street.
