Rambling observations on books, history, movies, transit, obsolete technology, baseball, and anything else that crosses my mind.

The Birds Are Flying South -- October 3, 2015
Aviation was a hot topic in 1927 after Charles Lindbergh's solo flight across the Atlantic. the cover of the 24-November-1927 shows what appears to be a well-off lady heading south for the winter, like a migratory bird. The original Life Magazine was a humorous weekly that was published from 1883 to 1936.
Congratulations to Matt Duffy, the first rookie to win the Willie Mac award. Many previous recipients were at the ballpark, along with Willie McCovey, who is in a wheelchair.
