Note to Ann Marie

FYI: The storied Chicago wire service that the Tribune Co. is shuttering is not the "New City News Service," as you called it in your note to the Chicago Tribune's staff. In his Tribune story on the layoffs, David Greising calls it "City News Service"; this Editor and Publisher report says it was briefly called "New City News Service" after the Sun-Times bowed out in 1999, but Tribune soon dropped the initial "new" because it sounded kind of stupid. Not that it matters now.
