About meJournalist, newspaper guy for many years, Dodger fan, Charger fan, Laker AND Clippers fan, movie watcher, follow politics intensely and emphatically believe they make a massive difference. Love movies, especially chase movies, have no qualms about liking a bunch of television show and think ``The Wire'' really IS the best thing ever.

About my libraryLean heavily toward modern fiction, not necessarily best seller authors, but authors who should be considered writers of literature but are generally snubbed in that regard as genre writers: LeCarre, Chandler, Hammett. Best books I've read in recent years: ``Parting the Waters,'' ``Mystic River,'' ``The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'' (which led to a spate of Nordic mysteries), ``The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay,'' ``A Widow for One Year.'' Liked Tom Wolfe before he became an insufferable scourge.
