Tribune Funny Business

Your Chicago Tribune business section reports that, Trib Inc's auction has "fizzled" and management is now looking for new ways to raise its value. Here is a free tip for Dennis FitzSimons:

Stop hiding Phil Rosenthal on page three of the Chicago Tribune business section.

Writing like his should be featured more prominently:
Everyone knows hiring Rich Little to perform at this year's White House Correspondents Dinner is playing it safe, a response to the blogstorm of controversy from last year's savaging of the president and press by Stephen Colbert. ***

If you visit Little's Web site,, check out the page with a sampling of some of the many voices he does. Roughly two-thirds of the more than 150 people on the list are dead.

That's not comedy. That's a seance.
Hiding an asset like Phil Rosenthal may constitute a breach of the Tribune's fiduciary duty to its shareholders.
