Melvin Maddocks's twice-weekly column for the Christian Science Monitor was frequently a sketch about a leading figure. The two excerpts that follow show how much a good writer can get across in fewer than one thousand words, and how a writer gets at the essence of the man. The first comes from The Flower of Ice Hockey Takes His Last Turn, written upon the retirement of the Montreal Canadiens' Guy LaFleur and the second is from Remembering the Late, Great Count Basie the Swinging Never Stopped, a column commemorating the pianist-composer upon his death.
