- "We were trying to get an interview. I went up to the door and knocked. Nobody came to the door. I knocked again and nobody came. So Clayton says, 'I'll show you how to knock on the door.' He starts beating on this door constantly. "They can stay in there and ignore it, but they're only going to do that for so long. Pretty soon this is going to annoy the hell out of them and they're not going to be able to stand it and they're going to come open the door.' And they did. So now I know how to knock on a door. It's kind of hard on your hand."
- "I got a call from some guy who said he died and came back and would like to talk with me about his experience. I thought, how the hell do I do that story? Who do you check with to see if it's true? Sol told him I wasn't interested. Next day, front page of the Press."
- "With the two newspapers, you were always trying to outdo the other-with story content and everything else. Afterwards, it was the same reporters we'd have' a beer with. But breaking a news story, anytime, you're fighting each other. That was a fun time in the newspaper business in Cleveland. And I think the public was rewarded for it."
- "One day, I came to work and there was a bulletin in the early edition of the Press that said our theater critic had a heart attack in the middle of Ninth Street. I said, 'God, that's awful' A city editor looked at me and said, 'He's back there working. He passed out in the goddamn street. He had too many martinis at lunch.'"
- "I did make some mistakes. A lady called me up at my apartment on Saturday morning, like at 8, and said, 'I just blew up a batch of cookies. They exploded in the oven.' I said, 'You didn't see the correction in the paper?'"
- "Two weeks on the job as a sportswriter and the Browns' PR guy walks in, throws down this big envelope on my desk and says, 'Okay, sonny, here's your season tickets.' Inside, 16 tickets to the Browns games. Forty-yard line, upper deck. I thought I died and went to heaven."
