January 15 is my last day at the Tribune. It’s been an amazing run. I’m so grateful to all the wonderful reporters and editors who helped me along the way. I regret not being able to find a buyer for the newspaper but otherwise go out with my head high and my boots on.

Such a stellar journalist - a singular investigative juggernaut. His incredible body of work, from Cuba to Mexico to exposing Chicago corruption, is unparalleled.

1/7 After 33 years at Chicago Tribune, 28 as architecture critic, I’m taking a buyout + leaving the newspaper. It’s been an honor to cover + critique designs in the first city of American architecture + to continue the tradition begun by Paul Gapp, my Pulitzer-winning predecessor

Blair is stunningly talented, smart, dedicated, compassionate - I don't have enough adjectives. I watched him day after day, surrounded by stacks of books, in silent awe.

Yes! We must investigate the security breach at the Capitol today. I warned our Caucus and had an hour long conversation with the Chief of Police 4days ago. He assured me the terrorists would not be allowed on the plaza & Capitol secured. What the hell?

Thrilled to make my @BlockClubCHI debut with this freelance story in partnership with the great @NancyLStone. Kind of a contemplative story on an eccentric farmer, yes, but more generally about community and human connection. Give us a read.

Two great ink-stained journalists - a writer and photographer - come together, once again, to keep doing what they do best.
