Newspaper giant dies
A real giant in the newspaper business died Tuesday. Ben Bradlee, former editor of The Washington Post who was immortalized in the movie “All the President’s Men,” was 93. They say he was the last of editors of his type... gruff, tough and charming. Bradlee  was portrayed by Jason Robards, Jr. in the movie about the Watergate scandal that brought down a president. 
Robert Redford and  Dustin Hoffman also starred in the movie along with Deep Throat, the mystery man we didn’t know until recently.
There are some great lines from the film and one I will always remember  and I am paraphrasing here. Jason Robards was constantly asking his young tenacious reporters to get a second source and to make sure they were right as they were closing on the scandal because, he said, “the whole blankety blank Constitution of the United States in riding on this!”
We will probably never see the likes of him again.

Cardinals are unbelievable!
While listening to the Cardinals-Dodgers game Tuesday night on the radio I told myself there is no way the Cardinals can score off Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers ace pitcher who is being compared to the great pitchers of all-time. The Cards scored eight runs in the 7th inning in L.A. to beat him a few days ago.
Unbelievably, the Cardinals did it again in the 7th inning as Matt Adams slammed a three-run homer off Kershaw to put the Birds on top, 3-2, and that’s the way it ended. St. Louis now faces an old nemesis, the San Francisco Giants, in the National League Championship Series starting Friday.
Hollywood couldn’t write a better scripts. Go Cards!
