Great writing from the likes of Ring Lardner, Jerome Holtzman, David Condon, John Schculian, MIke Downey, Dave Nightingale and others. Even a cameo appearance of sports stories from Mike Royko (a hilarious "review" of a book by NY Mets Keith Hernandez) and Bob Greene.
Nicely put together and edited by Ron Rapoport, whose work I remember from both Chicago and later in Los Angeles. The introduction really spells out how newspapers of today have changed, and not for the better.
