We remember Grant Tinker, who died last month at 90. He founded MTM productions with his then-wife Mary Tyler Moore and produced her hit TV show. Later as chairman of NBC, Tinker oversaw the hit shows Cheers, Hill Street Blues and St. Elsewhere.
Catching up with the editor of The Onion
Serious, important news is everywhere you turn. The economy and job market are still too slow for many people. Superstorm Sandy led to deaths and destruction.
So for a few minutes, we’ve decided to lighten things up just a bit with Will Tracy, editor of the satiric outlet The Onion. The group’s new book is a take on the traditional encyclopedia. It’s called The Onion Book of Known Knowledge.
Another editor will be in the Valley on Nov. 3 for a signing at Changing Hands Bookstore.
