Daniel Rubin is the Senior Editor, News Features at The Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News & Philly.com. This is a collection from his years as a reporter, columnist and correspondent for The Inquirer and Knight Ridder. Before Philly, came The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., and the Virginian Pilot and Ledger Star in Norfolk, Medill and Pomfret School. Sweep for bias and you’ll find unreasonable admiration for the first Bill Evans Trio, the ’71 Stones, the 2004 Red Sox, and for the past few decades, assorted Philly teams with more character than rings. Trust the process.
