I just found out that New York City newspaper columnist extraordinaire Jimmy Breslin just passed away at age 88. I am not a political person, but over the years I have read his columns in various New York newspapers. I also remember in 1969 he ran for President of the City Council on a ticket headed by mayoral candidate Norman Mailer.
My favorite book of his has to be:
Breslin, J. (1963). Can't anybody here play this game?. New York: Viking Press.
This book was about my beloved 1962 New York Mets.
Anyway, I suggest my readers check out this excellent obituary in New York Magazine.
