The [Christmas Eve 2014] Papers

Over the transom.

1. "Need some xmas dinner conversation topics?"

Why, yes, Verso Books! Something safe to discuss with the in-laws.

"All books on Israel/Palestine are 50% off through Dec. 31st!"




2. The Illinois GOP's War on Christmas continues.



3. The Trews.

Previously: The Trews vs. Sainsbury's Xmas Advert.


4. Sleigh Full of Heartache.


5. ICYMI: A few of my not-so-favorite things.

Bonus carol:

Here come the Bears, there go the Bears
Here come the Bears, there go the Bears
Here come the Bears, there go the Bears
Here come the Bears, there go the Bears


* Castle Chicago Closing.

"The River North icon has lasted 25 years under different names, including Excalibur and Limelight."

* The Other Torture Report: The Secret CIA Document That Could Unravel The Case For Torture.

Shows that, internally, the CIA agrees with its critics.

* Juan Williams' Son On Why He Became A Republican.

The answer: My father grew up poor and liberal programs helped him attain wealth. I grew up rich and conservative programs will help me retain wealth. Also: I learned the exact wrong lessons from my father's upbringing.

* Off Duty, Black Cops In New York Feel Threat From Fellow Police.

Localize, please.

* Rex Grossman Turns Down The Browns.

Rex Grossman is our quarterback.

* Johnny Manziel Does His Job Better Than Sportswriters Do Theirs.

"Sports reporters are often like a dumb herd of sheep, heading all in the same direction for reasons they don't understand."

News reporters too.

* Wealthy Donors Sided With Democrats In Midterms.

That's the matter with Kansas.

* Why Do Cable News Shows Use So Many Celebrity 'Experts'?

What this article gets wrong is blaming an abundance of airtime to fill. Even a 24-hour-a-day news network can't possibly cover everything newsworthy going on in the world. That's a cop-out. The real answer: These aren't news shows, they are entertainment shows milking "news" for material.
