- A beat to avoid
Tribune report: “Sources say the Sun-Times, which…was purchased in December by Wrapports, a new company headed by Chicago technology entrepreneur Michael Ferro, may be interested in acquiring the Reader for its entertainment news.”
FYI, Michael Ferro, I kill on entertainment news. Or could, if asked. I watch TV all the time—big fan of West Wing, though, straight-up, haven’t caught an episode lately. Pig-out on Vogue whenever I’m in the dentist’s waiting room. Took in a bodacious bluegrass concert Saturday at an American Legion hall in Evanston. Saw The Artist at a theater Friday night, and can beat out an expose on the bogus price of popcorn. Would keep it short-form, no worries. Race, poverty, politics—that shit is tired.
