In yet another sign of a continued decline in large daily newspaper advertising revenue, Tribune Co., which owns the Chicago Tribune and LA Times among other papers, has announced a “restructuring” that sheds nearly 700 jobs.

What defect makes it so hard for speakers to understand the effect of their own words? I ask following today’s visit from a window whiz who verbally leapt from flashing to sashes to sill stops and drip caps in numbing and discomfiting crescendo.
The Chicago Tribune is hard at work on a new project that will cost subscribers and readers a few more dollars but will eliminate the advertisements in a new weekly Sunday edition. The premium content will focus exclusively on news and cultural events.
