Rooting for an old friend to get back into the lineup By John League A business friend of mine is about ready to retire, and I asked him what he would miss most when he stopped working. He told me that the one thing he loved about his job were the conversations he had with employees. Not during meetings. But the casual talk you have about your wife, your kids, your hobbies. The conversations we have at the coffee pot and copying machine. Where you get to know folks.

Friday will be a sad day for Lynn “Ed” Hull. That's when G. Gordon Liddy, Hull's favorite conservative radio talk show host, signs off the air for the last time. Hull, 64, a military retiree and regular caller to “The G. Gordon Liddy Show,” realized a dream when he was invited to meet Liddy in person on Monday's show. Hull said he and Liddy talked during the first 20 minutes of the show, mostly about how bullets are manufactured. “He seemed to know a lot about it,” Hull said.

Few of you will likely recognize the phrase: "Come with me to the thrilling days of yesteryear ... " That was how the famous Lone Ranger radio program of the late 1930s and early '40s used to start. While you may not recall that bygone radio show, you must remember the year Charles "Lefty" Driesell lifted his Maryland Terrapins above the long run of John Wooden-coached UCLA teams to nab Maryland's first-ever NCAA basketball championship in April 1974. Surely you remember that wonderful team of talented, unselfish players - Tom McMillen, John Lucas, Len Elmore, Mo Howard, Tom Roy and that human dynamo of the inside game, Moses Malone.
