Is that political commentator Jeff Greenfield, fresh out of college sitting at his desk? Of course not; why that's Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times in 1969, possibly looking over one of his dazzling movie reviews. Was it ``Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’’, ``Midnight Cowboy’’ or maybe John Wayne's Oscar winning performance in ``True Grit’’?
Legendary gossip columnist Irv Kupcinet at his desk in 1948, pounding out ``Kup's Column'' a fixture on the Sun-Times pages, beginning in 1943 (at the Chicago Daily Times) and lasting for six decades. The column was so popular it was distributed to more than 100 newspapers around the world.
