This past weekend, Lolla wasn't the only expensive ticket in town. Saturday marked the first day citations could be given for possession of small amounts of marijuana under an ordinance passed in June. Eleven people in Chicago were ticketed under the new law Saturday and Sunday, according Chicago Police spokeswoman Melissa Stratton. The tickets were handed out in eight different police districts in the city, all in public places, according to Stratton. The tickets, which are typically $250 but can be as much as $500, weren't handed out at Lollapalooza, however, as the...

After Ald. Danny Solis (25th) announced his decision to propose changes to Chicago's laws for small amounts of marijuana possession, RedEye gave him a call to see why he thinks the issue is ripe for discussion. Why did you put this measure forward? There are basically three reasons. … The key issue for me on this is that this is over 83,000 hours of police time that can be spent in our neighborhoods, patrolling for more serious crimes. And the second reason?

*1/2 (out of four) Formerly called “The Wettest County in the World” and then “The Wettest County,” “Lawless” depicts neither a soaked country or a chaotic, lawless society. Oops. Sure, this Prohibition-era tale, based on Matt Bondurant's book “The Wettest County in the World,” focuses on real-life brothers (Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Clarke) who run a moonshine operation in Franklin, Va., supposedly the wettest county in the world. You'd think this much-delayed drama from director John Hillcoat (“The Proposition”)

I suppose after five years of anticipation and cult hit status, it would be difficult to not let down the fans. Nevertheless, I wanted so little of the fourth Netflix-driven season of “Arrested Development” - the bar was so low. Just put all of those characters back on screen, I figured, and I'd be happy. But this experiment was, for all intents and purposes, an abysmal failure. Okay, that might be strong. AD4 still wrung more than its fair share of reluctant laughs out of me even after I got pissed at it: George Michael's fumbling, Tobias's...
