Sinatra vs. Royko

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, May 7, 2014.

    Sinatra sent Rokyo a letter after the columnist ripped into him.

    I can't wait to drop this line on someone: I don't understand why people don't spit in your eye three or four times a day.
     
  3. To be fair to Royko, calling someone to confirm facts is hard.

    The letters site - which is quite entertaining - makes it seem that Sinatra's letter was the last word. Royko answered with a column:

  5. Another reason Royko was one of my must-read guys growing up.
    Thanks for posting that.

    Anyone interested in Mike Royko should try to snare Dick Ciccone's book. Fascinating insight into the talents and demons of the man.

    Edit it more stylishly in the future - just cut it down to "." like Ralph Smith would.

    I don't think that's even the best Frank Sinatra letter on that site:

    That one was really good.

    Too bad the subject of the letter failed to heed its solid advice.
