Chris Hayes profiles former Tribune political reporter and star media consultant David Axelrod, now in the employ of Obama and Deval Patrick. He's a University of Chicago grad who got hired by the Trib right out of college and was a political columnist by 27; later on, he helped install Harold Washington in the mayor's office.

Crain's picks for best Chicago preachers, circa 2004; a great idea that I'd love to see updated. If you have favorites, feel free to recommend them in comments.

Disarming the Prairie, selections from a photo essay by prominent Chicago photographer Terry Evans from the book of the same name, about the Joliet Army Arsenal (once the world's largest TNT factory).

Video from the 1929 Cubs/Athletics World Series (from the comments section: "I contacted the Cubs front office and they didn't seem excited at all [about the footage].")
