journalist Richard Ben Cramer passed away a few days ago. He was known for insightful books on the Middle Est, the 1988 presidential campaign and biographies of DiMaggio and Ted Williams. Even though I haven't read his books, I did see him on tv lots of times and appreciated his detail, calm style and deep, crusty voice.

The link is a 15 min clip of Cramer reading from the DiMaggio book about Joe growing up in North Beach in SF, selling newspapers on Market Street, Galileo High School and his father, a fisherman working the Bay.

Barry, last year’s super star for the San Francisco Warriors, has been signed by Oakland. He is unable to play for one year, however, because of contract obligations. (AP Photo)
