Mike, you never heard of Lou Jacobi?

He was born in Toronto and not one word from you about his death.

For shame! :)

J.D.'s best non-appearance was in the film "Field of Dreams", after being the "author" in W.P. Kinsella's "Shoeless Joe Jackson". (Portrayed as Terence Mann by James Earl Jones in film.) Loved the movie...... but the novel was even better!
