Feedback on Mr. McCourt, Please
It looks as though Dodger owner Frank McCourt will return to "Talk of the City" for future conversations. So I'm soliciting questions. And comments, please, if you heard the interview. Too softball for you? Not enough trade talk? Throw me your toughest curve.

Kitty, I did get a chance to hear the entire interview, and I thought it was spot-on and anything but softball. In particular, I loved your opening question regarding where his loyalties would lie if the Red Sox were to face the Dodgers in the World Series. Clearly Mr. McCourt did not wish to speak about the Bradley-Kent situation, and you probably knew going into the interview that he would not comment about it, but still you made the effort, and I applaud you for that as well.
Hey, the best thing is that he wants to come back and talk with you some more, and I believe he volunteered to do so because he was treated fairly and given ample space to speak about his vision for the franchise and what he has learned about its place in the community. He seemed like a very sincere person, and all baseball fans in Southern California should be happy that our teams are no longer owned by NewsCorp and The Walt Disney Company.
