Brendan J. Lyons
Even though I'm in Saratoga entertaining a visitor, I've been bulldozing through Season 1 of the old "Superman" tv series from the 1950s. In the tried and true tradition of reporters as portrayed on the show, today's Times Union presents the kind of story that once appeared 3 times a day in any newspaper worth its salt: an investigative piece! In "Doubt Over Tuffey Status" reporter Brendan Lyons spins a tale around the Albany Police Chief's status: "not a certified police officer." The article notes "it's unclear whether Albany's city charter...require the chief to be a certified police officer." Beyond the story itself, Lyons' style of investigative reporting is logical and informative, in a style common during the 1930s through 60s, when newpapers ruled!
