What Can I Say?

"Just as important is what is not changing, the values that run as deep as our century-and-a-half relationship with our readers. You invite us into your homes, and we in turn promise to deliver the news accurately and fairly, to bring clarity to complex events, to provide a comprehensive report of news, features, investigations and opinion, to serve as a watchdog and voice for those less able to do so. We are not just a business or a printer but a citizen of this great metropolis, with a citizen's commitment and passion."--Chicago Tribune editor Ann Marie Lipinski, in a 2001 note to readers about the newspaper's redesign. Above is the front page of today's RedEye, an "edition" of the Chicago Tribune, bringing clarity to this very complex event (NSFW).
