61 years ago today this quiet edifice - Holy Cross Hospital - on Chicago's South Side came alive with the cries of a bouncing baby boy. And he is still raising a joyful noise.
I have mixed feelings about this personal benchmark, but I take comfort in my many friends and loving family. It has been a good life so far, and I look forward to many more years in your good company.
