    Sad news, though it has seemed to spike interest in his life and work (which are really the same thing).

    I had no idea he was this old.

    Does anyone besides me think he looked like Miami hoops coach Charlie Coles?

    His Letterman appearances in the '80's were historical gems.

    If anyone want to learn about him, the bio-pic American Splendor is a good, entertaining start. Paul Giamatti at his best in role he was born to play.

    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    Yeah, I have at least a couple of the Letterman appearances on videotape. Really funny stuff.
