Chicagoans can perhaps be forgiven for acting as though the only thing going on in the world this past weekend was Lollapalooza; the constant flood of silly posts from Grant Park clogging my Twitter feed was about enough to keep me off the service for the weekend. But running a close second to Lollapalooza were tweets from people at the Newport Jazz Festival. Granted, the Newport tweets weren’t any more illuminating, but they did at least make me jealous about the lineup.
