Art Institute ranked as top museum in the world. There's room for debate on this one, but our museum is fantastic.
If you were asked to name Chicago's single greatest cultural contribution, you would probably stifle the impulse to say the hot dog. You might say it's the city's stunning architecture. If you're of a cynical bent, you might say it's our world-class political corruption.

Wonderful story by Chicago Tribune's Colleen Mastony.
The rescuers dug until their fingers bled. They dug with shovels and buckets and their bare hands. But they found no trace of the boy who had been swallowed by the dune.

John Kass dissects Pat Quinn's "Minimum Wage Challenge."

Fascinating political story by Chicago Tribune's John Chase, David Heinzmann and Jeff Coen about the connections between Rahm Emanuel and Bruce Rauner. 
Just a few months before announcing plans to become Chicago's next Democratic mayor, Rahm Emanuel strolled down the gravel path to a Montana resort restaurant with Republican businessman Bruce Rauner , both men smiling as they carried bottles of wine.

Building land on water isn't an everyday job, and the $100 million project to extend the Chicago Riverwalk requires more than getting toes wet.
