    The salutation had a jocular undertone, but it was rooted “in the immense respect we all had for Sid,” recalled...

    I’ve spent many hours with Monty Hall over the past two months. It’s work related, so I’ve gotten to know him in a way I never did when I was a kid. Back then, I’d come home from school and watch him on “Let’s Make a Deal.”
