    The point is that the Tribune is a zombie which should be buried. And in no way should be contemplated as a trustworthy source. The people taking leave from the newspaper recognize this.


    What a ridiculous comment. As bad as the tribune has become, the city is a better place with it than without it.

    Happened to be watching the newest episode of Gaming Historian on YouTube, and who should pop up on the 1988 consumer electronics beat but one Phil Vettel of the Chicago Tribune.

    This was a Nintendo peripheral one stood on that looked like a pogo ball. While the article mentions it in passing, it's a great loss we don't have his firsthand review of the Power Glove. I am now involuntarily picturing the cross-application of both such haptic technologies to the kitchen.

    The Chicago Tribune is naming Louisa Chu and Nick Kindelsperger as its food critics, following the departure of Phil Vettel in January after 31 years as the city’s definitive authority on dining.
