Ernie Harwell, the long-time Detroit Tigers radio and TV announcer died tonight at age 92 after a battle with cancer. The voice of the summers of my childhood has been quieted and a piece of the innocence in all of us goes with it. He was a good man who got to spend his life around the game he loved and was able to share it with all of us with humility, class, and an abundance of grace.
The Twins announced the news to the Target Field crowd during the seventh-inning stretch, putting a picture of his smiling face on the big screen. Twins fans saluted him with a warm standing ovation.
"His passion and wisdom during each broadcast gave you insight to his love for the Tigers, and for the state of Michigan," Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said in a statement. "The entire Detroit Tigers' family extends their heartfelt condolences to his wife, Lulu, and the Harwell family."
If you didn't grow up within earshot of the 50,000 watts of WJR in Detroit, you probably can't quite understand this, but trust me when I say the man's voice simply WAS summer. It WAS baseball. It WAS childhood. It WAS Detroit. And it WAS innocence. And it was all of those things for several generations of Tigers fans.
No matter what was happening in my beleaguered hometown, from riots, to unemployment, to corruption, to an exodus, Ernie was the constant. And every year, spring came and anything was possible for Detroit when Ernie came on the radio to call a Tigers game. He stood above all the problems of that city with elegance, grace, class and never a nasty word for anyone.

Who Is Clark Rockefeller? which is based on a true story, stars Eric McCormack and Sherry Stringfield as Clark and Sandra Boss, a married couple who have one child and eventually get divorced. The reason for the divorce is that Sandra (Stringfield) doesn't have a clue as to who Clark really is.
Clark Rockefeller is living a lie and is a con artist of the nth degree. He plays his role(s) completely and dupes smart, educated people who should be able to see through him. Sandra Boss is an educated woman who falls for his stories and for him hook, line and sinker. She honestly believes that he is one of those "Rockefellers" and that because he comes from a wealthy, prestigious family he is entitled to be a little different.
Her gullibility costs her a fortune. He stays at home with t heir child and she earns the living for the family. She even stays in the city during the week and comes home on weekends so that she can earn more money and keep him in the lifestyle to which he is accustomed. While she is doing it, it all seems so logical.
McCormack is fairly solid as the chameleon like Clark. It isn't an amazing acting job but it does serve the purpose of the story. Stringfield out acts him as the gullible but intelligent Sandra. She plays her role with such confidence and involvement you can almost accept Sandra's gullibility.
