    Danny Ozark when he managed was just as malaprop-prone as Yogi Berra only he wasn't around long enough or in New York enough to be quoted. But even Yogi didn't say many of the silly things attributed to him. One day I was in the presence of Ozark when he blurted something. A New York writer in the room turned to another New York writer and whispered, "That's something we could have Yogi say."

    Yogi Berra owes his fame to the following in order of importance:

    1. Having Joe Garagiola grow up with him and using him for comic material.
    2. Having a comical appearance and name.
    3. Being a really good catcher.
    4. Playing on a dynasty.

    I find a certain irony here that Abramson can remember every interview with "photographic" accuracy but not whether she actually wrote something.

    If I was as lazy and arrogant as Jill Abramson in my job, I'd be unemployed.

    There’s a reason why she’s no longer editor of The New York Times.

    This smacks of "Alternative Facts."
    I won't be surprised if this whole controversy helps book sales. We may never know one way or the other, of course.

    Perhaps worth noting that every time she opens her mouth, Ms. Abramson makes it worse.

    So, how's life treating you these days Mrs. Abramson?
