LANDOVER -- They say that the biggest problem with being a rock-and-roll piano player is that the piano is not exactly a portable instrument. Unlike guitarists or singers, who can roam the stage at will, piano men (and women) are pretty much anchored behind their keyboard. Because who could possibly move a piano around?Billy Joel can.In fact, the set-up he brought to the U.S. Air Arena last night not only allowed him to spin his piano around like an hors d'oeuvre on a Lazy Susan, it let him transport his baby grand from the front of the stage to the back.

NEW YORK - Hidden within one of the most benign of New York establishments, the neighborhood deli, dwells a silent killer. Crouched beneath the ice cream freezer or curled in innocent repose between the aisles of condiments and canned soup, he waits patiently for his moment to pounce. Not only have many New Yorkers been face to face with this cunning deli dweller, some have been known to reach out a hand and, yes, rub the fiend behind the ear. The fiend in question is not insidious bacteria or even Steven Seagal.

I was shuffling books around my library on a recent late summer Saturday afternoon and for some reason or other, paused and opened a somewhat faded blue volume. It was "The Letters of Alexander Woollcott," edited by Beatrice Kaufman and Joseph Hennessey, that had been riding around my shelves, unread, I might add, for years. The posthumous volume of correspondence of the noted anthologist, author, commentator, New Yorker contributor, radio celebrity, actor, celebrated snob both intellectual and otherwise, and perennial Algonquin "Round Table" wit, was published by Viking Press in 1944, a year after his unexpected death.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Even as kids, born four years apart, Cal and Bill Ripken played on the same team. Cal always worked it out that way.The neighborhood gang would gather to play football or baseball or whatever the sport of choice happened to be, and Cal, possessing some athletic pre-eminence, would be picked to be captain of one team. Sometimes he bartered for his brother -- You take that guy, I'll take Billy -- and sometimes he picked him first, straight away.But always, they played together, Cal figuring that even if Bill wasn't as big as the other, older guys or as strong or as fast, he would find a way to win. Winning is what Cal cared about, and as far as he was concerned, Bill wasn't a pesty little brother.
