    Hal David, songwriting partner to composer Burt Bacharach, has died at age 91. He was known for songs infused with optimism, for love letters bound to be stuck in your head for days, and for asking a lot of questions. What's new, pussycat?

    In writing I search for believability, simplicity, and emotional impact. Believability is the easiest of the three to accomplish. One thing a lyricist must learn is not to fall in love with his own lines. Once you learn that, you can walk away from the lyric and look at it with a reasonable degree of objectivity. Often I discard a good line because it is inconsistent with the basic idea. If the line happens to be witty or sad in a particularly fresh way it hurts me to take it out. But that's part of the pain of writing.

    Simplicity is much harder to achieve. It is easy to be simple and bad. Being simple and good is very difficult. The sophisticated Cole Porter, the earthy Irving Berlin, the poetic Oscar Hammerstein, and the witty Lorenz Hart all have one thing in common - simplicity, the kind that is good. I must also mention a special favorite of mine, Johnny Mercer. Whether he is being poetic or humorous, he is never complicated. I seek this elusive thing called simplicity always. I hope I sometimes achieve it.

    Above all, I try to create an emotion to which others can respond. Unless I can create an emotion to which I can respond, I throw the lyric away. Although I cannot know how others will react, I assume that if it moves me it may do the same for them. Sometimes I am right, sometimes I am wrong.

    It's a golden age of True Pairings: there's the public coupling of Michael and Jackie (That 70's Show), as well as Jon Snow and Ygritte (Game of Thrones), plus unsubstantiated rumors of a romance between Mulder and Scully (The X-Files), and most recently, flirty pictures of a reunion between Dylan and Kelly (90210). Who would you be the most excited to see k-i-s-s-i-n-g in real life?

    Black Americans were not allowed to play in Major League Baseball until Jackie Robinson was signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1946. Before then, hundreds of gifted black baseball players competed against one another in successful Negro Leagues that formed all over America. There has been a great effort to remember and celebrate these great athletes, and many of them have since been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

    Buck O'Neil

    Buck O'Neil

    John "Buck" O'Neil was a first baseman and manager in the Negro American League. After playing, he eventually became the first African American coach in the MLB, and then late in life became a speaker and strong advocate for Negro leagues history, helping to establish the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. He played baseball in the Negro Leagues from 1937-1955. He played in four East-West All-Star Games in three different seasons, and two Negro League World Series.

    Andrew "Rube" Foster

    Andrew "Rube" Foster

    Foster is widely considered the best pitcher of the very early Negro Leagues -- he played from 1902-1917. Not all of his games pitched were recorded, but in 338 of them that were, he won 216. He also also founded and managed the Chicago American Giants, and organized the Negro National League, the first long-lasting professional league for African-American ballplayers, which operated from 1920 to 1931. He is known as the "father of black baseball."

    James "Biz" Mackey

    James "Biz" Mackey

    Above: Biz Mackey by Kadir Nelson, from We Are the Ship: The Story of Negro League Baseball.

    Before Josh Gibson rose to fame, James Raleigh "Biz" Mackey was regarded as black baseball's premier catcher. He was a tremendous defender, but also ranks among the leagues all-time greatest in both RBIs and slugging percentage. He was a five time Negro Leagues all-star and MLB great Roy Campanella once said "In my opinion, Biz Mackey was the master of defense of all catchers. When I was a kid in Philadelphia, I saw both Mackey and Mickey Cochrane in their primes, but for real catching skills, I don't think Cochrane was the master of defense that Mackey was. When I went under his direction in Baltimore, I was 15 years old. I gathered quite a bit from Mackey, watching how he did things, how he blocked low pitches, how he shifted his feet for an outside pitch, how he threw with a short, quick, accurate throw without drawing back. I got all this from Mackey at a young age."

    Walter "Buck" Leonard

    Walter "Buck" Leonard

    Buck Leonard was the first baseman for the Homestead Grays for 17 years, the longest term of service for a player on a single team in Negro League history. The Baseball Reference statistics show Leonard with an impressive .519 slugging percentage. Monte Irvin said "Trying to sneak a fastball past [Leonard] was like trying to sneak a sunrise past a rooster."

    In doing research for this post, I have come to the important conclusion that dogs reached the height of their cuteness in the 1930s. Really, like a fourth of these dogs are wearing little hats.

    There's no crying in baseball – but there's a whole lot of yelling, smiling, posing, and playing hard. The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was a women's baseball league founded founded in 1943 in order to keep public interest in baseball alive while the able-bodied male athletes were fighting the war abroad.
