He overcame a serious publicity setback to rise back to the top. His voice and the excitement he brought to the broadcast booth will be missed. But he deserves to slow down and enjoy the fruits of his long career of work.

Extremely knowledgeable about basketball and other sports, of course.

But I cannot hear Marv Albert without harkening back to the 1990s when he was accused of biting a woman during sex. Guess I never quite thought of him the same after that.

I believe that Hillary Clinton totally changed the dynamic on women’s rights and got those rights moving to where we are today. In fact, before Hillary, a woman getting a restraining order against an abusive man was a very difficult, almost impossible process.
