Trib's Rosenthal Calls Out S-T's Novak

In your Chicago Tribune, Phil Rosenthal goes after his former Sun-Times colleague Robert Novak:
Live long enough and you find yourself saying things that once might have been unimaginable.

Like "How about those World Series champion Chicago White Sox!" Or "What did Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger say to the California legislature?"

Or "Boy, that will be a must-read Robert Novak column."

With a five-count indictment handed down Friday against I. Lewis Libby, the vice president's chief of staff, in the grand jury investigation of the unmasking of a covert CIA agent that surfaced two years ago in Novak's column, isn't it nearly time Novak came clean in print?
This may expose my own prejudices against those who cover the dismal science, but could someone explain to me why the Tribune insists on hiding Rosenthal's stellar writing inside its business section?
