Here's a quick rundown of the developing stories mentioned in Tuesday morning's early news meeting. These are the stories that Chicago Tribune online section editors will be monitoring -- so a good place to check back for developments later in the day if they interest you.
You can use this to sound smart and impress your newshound friends, too.
Chicago Bureau Chief Angela Rozas said Mayor Rahm Emanuel has an 11:15 a.m. news conference, which is interesting because he's still new to the job. Police reporter Jeremy Gorner had a piece in the newspaper Tuesday looking at the new mayor's policing strategy, which could be one topic that comes up. The Rana terror trial also continues today, and former Mayor Richard Daley has accepted a post at the University of Chicago.
Over on the Breaking News Desk, our 24-hour multimedia news operation, editor Dan Haar identified two lead items getting some interest from readers Tuesday morning: A car chase and gunfight that led to two deaths in a fatal crash, and reports that a man got past security for 16 minutes at Willis Tower and made it to a top floor there before being tracked down.
Stu Courtney on Chicago Breaking Sports brought up the kind of news that almost doesn't need introduction: The Bulls enter a critical Game 4 against the Miami Heat tonight. But both the Sox and Cubs (links to South Siders and North Siders) are also playing tonight, if baseball is your preferred sport.
Zoe Galland at Chicago Breaking Business said they'd be following reports that T-Mobile would hasten development of their 4G network in Chicago.
Summertime safety for children will be the subject of today's noon live chat, said chicagotribune.com producer Darcel Rockett.
Benjamin Netanyahu addresses a joint session of Congress today, while President Barack Obama will be in England at a steak dinner. And the final installment of Dancing With the Stars airs tonight. If Disney Channel actress Chelsea Kane wins tonight, entertainment digital coordinator Matt Wood joked that he will win the office pool. Here's a link.
Good luck to Matt and all tonight's contestants.
