Robert Birnbaum was born in a displaced persons camp in Europe in 1947 and landed in Chicago in 1952. He briefly resided near Wrigley Field before his family decamped for Chicago’s Golden Ghetto. Despite a subpar college education, he has made a reading lifelong. His two guiding principles are, “Is it good for the Jews?” and “The sports team from my locale is superior to the sports team from your locale.” He resides in 02465 with his pooch Beny.
