And ever since on the last Tuesday of February, a group has met to celebrate "Survivors Day" in New York.

He was the rock of Gibraltar, a ruggedly handsome and incomparably authoritative TV image who set the standard for taking the most complicated issues of the day and analyzing them with exquisite fairness and grace. Eric Sevareid, who died at 79 Thursday in Washington, inspired a kind of instinctive trust with his touch of solemnity, his disregard for TV glitz and his refusal to talk down to viewers. He practiced the highest form of journalism--educating, explaining and respecting his audience.

Excuse me, Tony, you moron, Cal is no longer playing. He retired. "Hey, just because somebody is no longer playing doesn't mean he's retired. Patrick Ewing is no longer playing--but there he is sitting on the Orlando Magic bench like a wax exhibit from Madame Tussaud's."
