    Believe this fell through the cracks.

    Knew him pretty well . . . a character, and one of the most decent guys you'll ever meet

    Not a nibble . . . wow.

    As a careerist, he was largely a racetrack guy, but he was also a Philly/South Jersey
    guy, and surprised at zero response. Won't bump, again.

    I tried to post on this two nights ago and my computer didn't let me, for whatever reason.
    This was a good read on a guy who did well in the biz and understood how it worked.
    He reminds me of my brother, who worked over 20 years at Times-Picayune.
    Not the least bit full of himself and a really knowledgeable, helpful, driven person.
    Seems like Fidati was down-to-earth. RIP

    I'm waiting for someone in Philly to do more than was done on Philly.com. Shocked theirs
    was as short as it was. There's a generation gap involved here, but jeez, is it this wide?
    My longest sustained exposure to the guy was when he was in his early 40s,
    and I was quite a bit younger.
    Know that was a long time ago, and the world spins right along, but
    still surprised that the felling of his particular tree made so little noise here.
    We move on . . .
