In Billy Beane's 15 years as general manager of the Oakland Athletics, the A's have advanced to the playoffs six times.

To distract myself from this uneasy vigil--and from the phone that never rings, and from the icy rain that never stops pelting the window--I light a cigar and open a 40-year-old newspaper.

Great job on the 20th anniversary All-County football team, especially in choosing the quarterback. I grew up in Orange County and have always followed prep sports closely.

The man even builds his own guitars, and makes music that draws from the spiritual legacies of Robert Johnson, Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder. At his performance on Tuesday at the House of Blues, Harper and his band traveled from explosive blues tunes to moments of funk, folk, jazz and reggae.
