Personal Quote:

I watch absolutely no television series. None. Even though I know I am missing out on some very good programs, we have chosen to live almost a "culture free" life here in the hills of Vermont. I'm reading the books I was supposed to read in college. Walking with my wife and our five dogs. Food from the garden. Wine from California. See more »

Trivia:

His father, George, was a Post Office worker and his mother, Anne, was a bookkeeper in her father's hat company. His maternal grandparents lived downstairs and his grandmother proved to be remarkably influential in Goldberg's life: 'Anything that happened to me that's been good really goes back to Brooklyn and...my grandmother's apartment,' he once said.
