The Vin Scully Show, now embarking on its 36th year with the Dodgers, rolls on and on, with each new reviewer gushing more than the last. Fifty-seven summers aren't much betrayed in his ruddy-red Irish face. Neither is the sadness when he smiles, which, by nature and by design, is practically always. Yeah, even Vin Scully, master-weaver of high drama and happy endings, has his sadnesses.
Everyone agrees on this much: it was a hellacious night in the 41st Precinct, back in the early '70s, with the phones ringing off the hook. Lt. Lloyd Gittens, a precinct icon, grabbed one of the calls. Within seconds, he abruptly ended the conversation: "I don't have time for that. This is Fort Apache."
