Joel Weisman and his panel of guests discuss the top stories of the week.
Police say they have a strong suspect in the murder of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee. State Rep. Ken Dunkin is in hot water after breaking ranks with Democrats again. Macy’s flagship store on State Street may go part-residential. Work on the Lucas Museum of Narrative of Arts is stalled as a lawsuit is considered. And medical marijuana debuts in Illinois.
This week, Joel Weisman and his guests continue the conversation online with a discussion about Chicago Tribune columnist Fred Mitchell’s decision to take a buyout after 41 years with the company. While he is leaving the Tribune, he is not retiring. Fred reflects on his career, including the best all-around athlete he covered and how sports journalism has changed.
