When Philadelphia politicians made promises in the 1980s and ’90s, Inquirer reporter Dan Meyers made sure they kept them.
He called them out. Constantly, but fairly.
Mr. Meyers brought that tactic when reporting on Denver’s shiny new airport in 1995. He showed up for a test flight with a pair of skis, a box of Twinkies, two 40-watt lightbulbs, and six Grade-A eggs. He just wanted to make sure the high-tech baggage system worked as advertised.
