RIP Joe McGinniss


Here’s the “sig” cartoon of Joe McGinniss, at his start, banging out a Metro Column

    Quite an interesting article. Seems much different than the way news organizations are run today.

    I have fond memories too of the once mighty Philadelphia newspapers. Radio was great too.

  2. Seems poignant on St Patrick’s Day. Irish name?
