Tell Roger Baum that he laughs like the Cowardly Lion, and he'll take it as a compliment. And well he should--you could say the two of them are distant relatives. Indeed, Roger Baum, 51, is the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum, the author who dreamed up the Lion, the Land of Oz, its wonderful Wizard, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Glinda the Good Witch of the South, the Wicked Witches of the West and East, Dorothy Gale of Kansas. And Toto, too. "Well, thank you very much, that's quite an honor!"
