What ever happened to Ritholz? Friends for many yrs, 1 day in the '90s his address&telephone were no longer good. : I last talked to Ritholz five years ago, when he was pictured in The New York Times pouring a beer on the sidewalk outside Chicago's Biograph Theater, where John Dillinger was gunned down. It was the 70th anniversary of Dillinger's death. Crowe presided over a ceremony commemorating it and Ritholz poured a beer for the late outlaw.
: I have no doubt that the Herald has become more serious and a better paper since we were there. It went daily in 1986. I hope the students are still having fun putting it out.
: In one of the front-page articles in Thursday's anniversary edition, the current editor began a sentence about the paper's history with this: "While some may still take offense to Doug Moe's bizarre tirade on Madison bikers ..."
: I can't say I remember that column, but it's good to know I was capable of a bizarre tirade in those days. I should probably thank the Grotto for inspiration.
