Jane Jacobs gets a mention in the Scranton Times after all

Reporter Dave Falchek notes that Jacobs once worked on the Scranton Republican, which later became part of the Scranton Tribune, which later became part of the Scranton Times. She thought that demolishing three blocks of Lackawanna Avenue to build a mall was a bad idea, and many local urban-planning types worship her. That's all we learn about Jacobs as far as Scranton is concerned.

So, was Dave F (an alumnus of the S-S) instructed to write this little bit of fluff on Jane J, or did it appear through some other bit of wizardry? Just wondering out loud
