you think being a suck-up and slumlord count as being a good human being. Otherwise...
Sid is a national treasure and we are fortunate to have had him here in Minnesota. I always find the Star Tribune less interesting when Sid's column does not appear.
All of us have flaws including Sid. His fawning over team owners has always irritated me but I'll surely miss him when he's gone. His memory is the most complete history of Minnesota sports available. I'm glad Sid put much of that down in print so it won't be lost.
I have always enjoyed the sunday morning call in. I would like Sid to send me a Murrays Certificate.
And he is an original. I had two meetings with him in the 70's. He was rude and arrogant until he thought I could help him. On balance, he gets it done. You know his bias, so filter and enjoy his comments
Thank you to Mr. Hartman and thank you, Miss Barnes. A great story.
As I recall, Sid was given the biggest scoop - the chance to break the news that Knight was going to announce his retirement. Yet, he sat on the news, waited, and then wrote a column justifying his actions and making it all about Sid. Did you not bother to lecture him about the importance of breaking the news, Ms. Barnes? By the looks of it, it seems like you allow Sid to get the best of you and others in the newsroom when it's you who should be laying the smackdown like Kate Parry did in 2006.
to have Sid and when he quits we will never have another.
