Robert Merrill, the extraordinary opera singer, passed away Saturday at the age of 85. I heard him sing a couple of times on PBS, and he was a fabulous baritone. He was an intense Yankees fan as well. He opened the baseball season every year with "The Star Spangled Banner", beginning in 1969. He was much admired and I'm sure will be greatly missed.
