Robert Merrill, RIP

Just a note to mark the passing, this past week, of the great baritone Opera singer, Robert Merrill, who, in addition to performing regularly at the Met, sang the National Anthem at Yankee Stadium for three decades. He died, apparently, while watching the first game of the World Series; life-long Yankee fan that he was, I sincerely doubt it had anything to do with the Red Sox being in the Fall Classic, as some have suggested.

He will be long remembered.
