I’m 85, so when I started watching television, it was small and it was black and white.

There were maybe five channels.

I watched a lot of baseball—the Yankees and Dodgers—and B Westerns, movies with speeded up horse chases and guns going off and guys falling off the horses.

The baseball was elegant. In black and white, there was a certain distance from the action. It was real, but you weren’t clobbered on the head with blue and red and yellow and green. It was as if you were watching a black and white film that was Live, in the moment. The plot wasn’t decided. It was unfolding. A minor miracle.
