Hearing From Red Barber

Here is a great letter written by former Brooklyn Dodger broadcaster and mentor to Vin Scully, Red Barber found on eBay. It is to a Richard who must have asked some advice about life. Red's response is one we should all remember.
"The single best advice I ever heard was when my father said, 'Son, I don't know where you are going in the world--what you are going to do--who you are going to be with. I can't know these things. But I know this--every night when you are ready to go to sleep, you are going to have to sleep with yourself.'
What great advice from a man with plenty of experience to share. It is dated from February 17, 1991 which would make Mr. Barber 91 years old.
