More Blogs To Check Out

The Tribune's ChicagoNow isn't just all sports and lifestyle blogs
like you may think.  There are a bunch of them gathered under the
moniker "New & Opinion" that might be of interest (including the
ChicagoNow version of District 299). 

Former  Chicago Reporter guy Fernando Diaz runs these blogs, and he describes some of them here:

genuine and often classic. Catch his comments all over ChicagoNow.
