So, I had a tryst with a married man. I thought better of it eventually and ended it, but his wife still found out. And recently, she wrote me an email. I don't know his wife at all. What is my responsibility here? Do I write her back? Should I stay the f**k out of it (even though clearly I'm already involved)? - Conflicted Ex-mistress Stay out of it. No good could come from corresponding with his wife, and it will further complicate an already messy and fraught situation.

You may have tried to walk out your apartment building and nearly fallen because inches of snow sat on your stairs. What can you do about it? Who's responsible for clearing the snow? Turns out the law is "rather vague" about it, said John Bartlett, executive director of the Metropolitan Tenants Organization. City ordinance requires property owners to maintain the public sidewalk, but not specifically to remove snow from the stairway of private property. "Once it gets on to the private area of the property, there's nothing, as far as I know, that says they are...

Set to a heart-wrenching piano score like the one in the "What if the Cubs won it" commercial Playstation released this week, a new spoof from one Chicago network reminds sports fans that the Sox really did get the championship treatment in 2005. In a video posted as a counterpoint to Playstation 3's "MLB 12: The Show" TV spot - which features a hypothetical Cubs World Series victory sweeping Chicago - CSN took its own spin. Instead of trumpeting the video game's tagline "So real, it's unreal," the cable sports network hits back with "So real, it actually...

Joseph Finley, 62, was mauled by two pit bulls Monday while he was running on a path in Rainbow Beach Park. A bystander came to beat the dogs off with a bat, and police fatally shot the animals when officers arrived to the scene. Finley remained in critical condition Wednesday night at Stroger Hospital. The incident has reignited conflict between Chicago dog owners who take care of their pets and...

Twenty-one-year-old political science major and Student Government Association Senator Jessica Thiesen said it was "really upsetting" to receive an e-mail from the Roosevelt University on Nov. 30 notifying her that a student had been sexually assaulted in the stairwell of the school's Wabash Building, a residence hall five blocks away from her dorm.

For 10 seasons, Lance Briggs was the right-hand man to future Hall of Famer Brian Urlacher. Briggs was the Robin to Urlacher's Batman, the Luca Brasi to Urlacher's Don Corleone. Urlacher took the Arizona alum under his wing, taught him the ins and outs of Lovie Smith's defense and helped him become a star in his own right. With Urlacher now retired, Briggs is now the man in charge on defense. During the offseason, Briggs volunteered to be the Bears defensive captain. He will call the defensive huddles, alert his teammates to audibles and coverages and lead the 10 other starters week in and week out. ...
