He left Brooklyn many years ago but Brooklyn never left him. His childhood was a rich gumbo of passions: the Dodgers, radio, comic books, 78 rpm records, stickball, punchball, Barnaby & Mr. O’Malley, the Dodgers. From these ingredients his life's main interests were formed: jazz, classical music, writing, and (still) baseball. Brooklyn also gave him Brooklyn Girl, who has been his best friend for nearly half a century. One lucky kid.

To Brooklyn Girl on her birthday
Connie Boswell gets the essential arithmetic right -- me minus you means just nothin' at all, but me plus you equals love. Happy birthday!
