For some of the best coverage of the Burge trial, please see John Conroy's blog, with a hat-tip to the Beachwood Reporter and Steve Rhodes who keeps linking to it.

Aside: Links to some of the best local Chicago journos/bloggers
The Reader - if it's written by Ben Joravsky, you should read it.
Beachwood Reporter - a great daily commentary on the news that's important in Chi-town
Chicago Current - city and county news - exposing the nitty gritty. I particulary liked Alex Parker's county line blog before they reorganized the site...
Lee Bey's blog - general awesomeness and architectural commentary
Chicagoist - Chicago for the masses
Second City Cop - I hesitate to put this on here. SCC is wrong just as often as he's right, but it's a valuable, if not partisan (party = police = good) perspective.
