    As a 24-year-old newlywed in 1983, Lori Andre rented a vacant storefront on Armitage Avenue just west of Halsted Street, unsure how she would fill it. It was an unlikely address for either of her ideas — gourmet takeout or women's footwear —...

    Too much information about Ray Rice — and not enough about everything else [Letter]
    Where was your 9/11 coverage? I'm sick of hearing about the Ray Rice video. What did people think he was doing in that elevator, knitting doilies? I don't have any respect for a man who puts his hands on a woman. Period. As for the NFL, one has to ask...
