One headline hard to overlook this week was the one about the recent release of the 911 tapes connected with the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin (pictured above). Go to the “Life in General” section and take a listen for yourself to see why so many people are enraged.  Did you know that rapper/producer Ice Cube studied architecture before he became famous? Listen to what he has to say about world famous designers Charles and Ray Eames under “Creativity.” Warning, some profanity is used in this video, but hey, it’s Ice Cube. We should be use to it by now. Oh, and did you hear that Steve Harvey is bringing his new daytime talk show to Chicago? Read about it under “Entertainment.” Here are some other headlines you may have missed this past week.
