Cady doesn't hesitate to name names, and you'll recognize familiar faces -- but this time you'll get the details so you can attach the deed to the miscreant. Many of these folks are still around, making mischief (and enriching themselves at taxpayer expense).
Unfortunately, Cady is no longer an investigative reporter, and The Indianapolis Star has been sold to that bottom-feeder of a news organization called Gannett. Today's corrupt politicians and other public officials are free to ply their trade with no one to point out their misdeeds.
The only thing missing from this tome? An index!
Dick Cady does history a favor by writing this book which should stand for many years to come. This is not to say young readers should come away thinking these are good examples of those times as there are many other instances which reflect the best of our City and not just the underbelly of human behavior.
His discription of the STAR newsroom and the actors within is outstanding. They were really in a class by themselves. A few survive today despite their past obligations and the suffering of meeting their deadlines.
I rather enjoyed the begining of his book as it reflected the thoughts of a young reporter and his quest to do more with his circumstances.
Good work Mr. Cady.
I read this book in one sitting. Could not put it down.
