Thanks, Chicago Tribune
I'm looking forward to reading the paper when I get home from work today, and the whole thing is missing pages/misprinted.

Here's what they say at the Tribune website:

TO OUR CUSTOMERS
A computer system failure significantly delayed production of the print editions of today's Chicago Tribune. Delivery of complete and/or partial newspapers is under way, but some subscribers will not receive today's paper until tomorrow.

What good will getting today's paper tomorrow be???????

1. Ask for a one day credit on your next bill
I'm sure they'll grant it. My paper does, if asked.

4. I'd rather have tomorrow's news today
Specifically the sports section or the business section. I'd go to Vegas & make the right bets & win big!!!!

7. There were copies today, but truncated.
I hope they get the paper back tomorrow. Leonard Pitts, Jr's column is in the Tuesday's Tribune. Pitts is a good man. I like to read him.
