What do you think Lebron James should do after this season? Stay with Cleveland and try to win a title or should he change teams just because he thinks he makes that quest easier???

Here's another of my favorite Paul Simon lyrics: Losing love Is like a window in your heart/ Everybody sees you're blown apart

Interesting look at where LeBron will play next year and what it would take for each team to get him.

What's your favorite Paul Simon lyric? Consider these lines from the ecological-minded song Questions for the Angels,: If every human on the planet/ And all the buildings on it/ Should disappear/ Would a zebra grazing in the African Savannah/ Care enough to share one zebra tear?

Lewis D'Vorkin was apparently about to layoff about a quarter of the Times' 400-member newsroom. As one of our colleagues put it: "We were tied to the railroad track and the train was bearing down" just at the moment Patrick Soon Shiong, MD, stepped in. Extraordinary.

The 1st player I admired was Wally Moon. His “moonshot” home runs inspired the name of my production company. A ‘go-for-it’mentality. Taking what you’re given and making the most with it. RIP and thank you big guy.

To those of us who treasured Bob Dylan's "gospel" period, the deluxe version of Sony's TROUBLE NO MORE boxed set will probably exceed your greatest expectations. Truly essential and exciting...

GET OUT is a smart, bold film, but I'm still sticking with Dunkirk and Three Billboards as my Oscar front-runners...

Nice to hear from you Joe. Do you mean Paul Simon? yes, he was generous with his time and encouraged others close to him to speak.

That's a GREAT idea Dianne... funny thing, the timing of the tour and book was largely an accident... there was no talk of a retirement tour in 2015 when I started the biography of Paul...

Congratulations to everyone at the LA Times and everyone who reads the paper. The sale sounds like liberation. Hopefully, the Curse of Sam Zell has finally been broken
