Gone Writing: The Poems of Moore on Sunday
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn the 1950s, Dave Moore, a young actor born and raised in Minneapolis, accepted a newscaster position with the local CBS affiliate, WCCO-TV -- a job Walter Cronkite turned down. For the next three decades, until his death in 1998, he delivered the evening news with integrity, conviction, humor, and flair, making him a fixture in Minnesota living rooms.At the end of his weekly news-in-review program, Moore on Sunday (or, as he liked to call it, "Moron Sunday"), Moore often signed off by reciting a poem. These poems, composed by Moore's son Peter and collected here for the first time, offers a fresh and funny take on the common and not-so-common stuff of our everyday lives. Reminiscent of Ogden Nash and Tom Lehrer, with a dash of Dr. Seuss, Peter Moore's verse captures the essence of his father's wit, common sense, honesty, and warmth.
