However, the full of "flavor and spice" Tribune continues to plug away with the U of I stuff. It's as if nothing else in this city matters. I know, I'm preaching to the choir at this point but what about: crime, the Olympics, CPS, the State budget, the lack of social services, the fact that every single word that comes from the Olympic committee's mouth is bullshit? Today, the Trib ran another story on clout. Okay fine. Whatever, I'm not going to read it, but I'll link it. Meanwhile, this article in the Sun-Times about the Olympics is informative and they call out the pipe dream projections coming from these 2016 Dreamers.
And I should be fair, the Trib does run a few pieces with spice and passion: look no further than the editorial board. They write about clout a tad too often for my liking, but I'll put up with it because of editorials like today's.
