Dennis McCarthy: When it comes to Tommy Lasorda, what I remember most is the laughs

What do I think about Tommy Lasorda’s passing? I’ll tell you what I think about Tommy Lasorda’s passing. It’s a crying shame, but the guy couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat. Oh, the laughs that man gave us for over 50 years with his X-rated rants on bums hitting .200 who got lucky and beat the Dodgers. Side-splitting laughs, tears rolling down your face laughs. I’d give you a couple, but I’d get fired. There’s plenty of PG-rated stories, though. Lasorda driving in the rain alone, late f...

Anthony Davis, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope miss start against Bulls

LOS ANGELES — After knocking over a Gatorade cart in the third quarter of Thursday’s loss to the Spurs and calling the Lakers’ defense, well, a four-letter word, Anthony Davis seemed fired up to get back onto the court and show more effort. But when he woke up Friday morning, he felt tightness in his right side that made the Lakers think twice. Coach Frank Vogel isn’t sure exactly how Davis strained his right adductor against San Antonio, but the Lakers’ mantra has been caution this early in the...

Senior Living: Seniors face crushing drug costs as Congress stalls on capping medicare out-of-pockets

By Harris Meyer, Kaiser Health News Contributing writer Sharon Clark is able to get her life-sustaining cancer drug, Pomalyst — priced at more than $18,000 for a 28-day supply — only because of the generosity of patient assistance foundations. Clark, 57, a former insurance agent who lives in Bixby, Oklahoma, had to stop working in 2015 and go on Social Security disability and Medicare after being diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a blood cancer. Without the foundation grants, mostly financed by t...

Now and 100 years ago, pandemics are (mostly) painful for high school sports

The pandemic forced some high school sports to be canceled or put on hold for more than a year. High school football was played in March. Does that sound familiar? It probably does if you were following the news 100 years ago … or paying attention to what has been happening with the local high schools since the spring. Though a century apart, the two biggest pandemics in U.S. history — the COVID-19 version and the Spanish Flu pandemic that erupted in 1918 — have a lot in common when it comes to ...
