No detached, scholarly, objective examination of the past, this is an eyewitness account of Cleveland during Phil Porter's fifty-year career as a working newspaperman in the city, told in his own blunt, subjective, often controversial style. Phil Porter retired in 1966 as executive editor of The Plain Dealer. Original publication date 1976.
