I grew up in a very special place. It wasn’t affluent or particularly picturesque. But, in many ways, it was beautiful. There was hardship and heartbreak there, but also love and affection and happy, happy times. It was a complicated place, a working-class section of one of America’s most important-and most misrepresented and misunderstood-cities. Like Rodney Dangerfield, Philly often gets no respect. But it is where America started-it was the birthplace of our nation, and I’m proud that it was my home.

Because I have so much to write-and so much already written-about South Philly, I thought I should have a separate site for that writing. Some of the material is universal, some esoteric. But I feel that I can write more freely about it if it were on a different site. I would be happy if you would check it out as it grows and let me know what you think.

You can find it here: http://southphillysaga.wordpress.com/

Thanks so much and Happy New Year!
