I hope people remember me for being the best shortstop that the Mets ever had.

He was often overshadowed by bigger named stars but his adult, nuanced performance in "Shane" is the glue that holds that classic together.

"Paris Blues" is a hugely under-appreciated Martin Ritt film starring Newman and Sidney Poitier as expat jazz musicians and Joanne Woodward and Diahann Carroll as a pair of American tourists who fall in love with them. Great acting and music and PARIS.

And she's still beautiful to this day.

Watched my Academy screener of "First Man" last night. Don't know how it's possible to make an interminably dull movie about the first lunar landing but Damien Chazelle pulled it off, with a major assist from Ryan Gosling.

I've never been able forget that I heard the awful news from none other Howard Cosell. The shooting happened during the telecast of a Monday Night Football game, Patriots-Dolphins, and it was Cosell who informed millions of us. One of life's strange cultural oddities.

A rare combination of mega-star power and a spectacular screenplay by Peter Stone, which remains the measuring stick for witty romantic thrillers 55 years later.

Don Johnson's character in "Miami Vice," Sonny Crockett, lived on a boat. In the early episodes I'd swear he shared it with the Florida Gators' mascot, though I think they phased that out.

There was never a doubt in my mind that they would figure out a way to cough up that ten point lead in a minute and a half.

He could, and he did. He was the master. But thank you.

"Portrait of a very small, highly unstable man seated behind a very large desk who has the the power to blow up the entire world. There are safeguards to prevent such a nightmare from happening in real life. But this isn't real life. You have just entered...The Twilight Zone."

I'm not a big Chuck Lorre fan but I'm watching "The Kominsky Method" on Netflix and liking it a lot. Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin are terrific. So is Nancy Travis.

I saw him perform at a tiny, invitation only club in Venice back in the '80s for some movie people, including Caleb Deschanel, and I swear I truly don't know how he did some of the things he could do with cards. A genuinely remarkable and gifted man.

The Times has been allowing itself to be used for political purposes since Whitewater and the run up to the Iraq War. Does this come as some kind of revelation to Nick Kristof only now that Trump and Facebook have arrived on the scene?

Absolutely. He's a great performer and always has been. Also extremely intelligent.

If you don't need a lot of drawers I've had a lot of luck using old library tables and farmhouse kitchen tables as desks over the years, but I like antique furniture.

Bring on Black Friday -- the ebook of my eighth Stewart Hoag novel, THE MAN WHO LOVED WOMEN TO DEATH, is on sale today only for $1.99. I wrote it in 1997 and thought it was going to be the end of the Hoagy-Lulu series. Which it was -- for 20 years.
