An unfortunate observation this morning:

Cover story of today's Chicago Tribune Magazine: (registration required)
"Submarine Warfare: Quizno's Is Challenging Subway for Market Share. And Chicago is Their Prime Battleground."

Cover story of today's New York Times Magazine:
"When the Man of the House Is in the Big House."

As city papers go, I'm glad I get the Tribune, as opposed to many others. But these two cover stories make it clear why we still look like the second city. Is this the best the Tribune can do in terms of social relevance?

I had the same thought about the TribMag. The story was barely interesting or relevant enough for the Food section, let alone the magazine.

Yes, you're right, it was a searing expose of...the submarine sandwich industry. We've all been crying out for that, haven't we?

In Rick Kogan's June 2oth article "Does Baseball Still Matter?" there is a picture of his boyhood hero, Luis Aparicio. I may be wrong, but, it sure looks like MY boyhood hero, Nellie Fox, with his trademark chaw of tobacco and all. Who's right? Gary Lilly, Berwyn, Il.

Editor chicago tribune mag. someone's priorites are out of line when it comes to the article on holly hunt. she has 3 houses, when many in america are homeless, does she care apparently not. one of her favorite things are her bulgari diamond earrings 18 emerald cut. these could feed a lot of famlies. it was not an inspiring story it nauseated me that a person could live that way when our troops are fighting for our nation. has any of her children joined the military or are they too good to serve our county.

OK, people, just to make things clear, leaving a comment here is NOT the same thing as writing a letter to the Tribune. If you have specific editorial comments for the editors of the Tribune you will have to write to them directly. This site has no affiliation with the Tribune Company, I just read the paper.
