An anonymous tipster emailed us about a curious incident with today's Tribune: "If you checked out the print edition of the Trib today, apparently WomanNews was yanked from most editions b/c at the last minute they deemed a story too vulgar or something, although apparently it still made it into a few editions." Anyone have a copy? Know what the article was about? Email inbox at gapersblock.com. [UPDATE: Crain's tells the story.]
