I left Philadelphia in the early 80's; moving to locations where Philadelphia and gifted artists were cited enough times that it spiked my curiosity wanting to know what was it about this city that seemed to produce this talent. And then I opened Larry Kane's memoir where there he explained it--taking me back to memories of my family's passionate discussions. I can't begin to describe how meaningful that message was to me.
Transcending through Kane's interesting career honestly relayed, him often paring journalism today to the past, I again thought back to my parents...and their parents...and deep into the generations recalling many wondering what was becoming of the newer generations. I used to tease them all the time; `Why wonder? You raised us' --which none too ironic is the same driver I found conveyed in Kane's passionate Philadelphia driving journalism today. Caroline Kennedy's quote supports this contention. This is a profound keepsake of a memoir, to which I must add, Larry Kane (for me) will always be synonymous with Action News.
