The [Friday] Papers

For awhile there yesterday - and I wasn't the only one - I thought I had learned that the holdout juror was a precinct captain for Sandi Jackson. Wouldn't that have been interesting?

I had to settle instead for discovering that - according to one report - she said during jury that "she has gotten some of what she knows about Blagojevich from Jay Leno, which got a broad smile and a big laugh from the former governor."

For that and the exasperated - and right - local reporter who thinks she's crazy, see The Holdout Juror in Beachwood Politics.

Too Easy?
"Blago: Senate Seat Talk Was Legal 'Horse Trading'."

Or trading by a horse's ass.

Too Easy?
"In a news release Wednesday, Daley says the O'Hare Express Blue Ribbon Committee will evaluate whether new train service is feasible and then make a plan to develop it," Crain's reported this week.

If they make it the Pabst Blue Ribbon Line, I'm there.

Too Easy?
"Joe The Plumber Focuses On Responsibility In Springfield."

Not too easy, but too tortured; I was going to go for a "cleaning up the horse poop from all that horse trading" line here.

Will skip similar Cubs joke.

Too Easy?
Blago can't wait to testify at his retrial . . .

Too Easy?
"City To Create 'Name Registry' For Homeless."

Surf & Turf
"Want turf racing? Arlington Park's got your turf racing. It's Million Week and the palace is hammerin' the turf angle home as it plans to run 11 of its 12 races Saturday on the world-class grass course," our man on the rail Thomas Chambers reports. See who he likes.

The Week In WTF
The holdout juror, Mike North, Dan Rostenkowski, Sam Zell and the Chicago Bears all make David Rutter's list this week. See why.
