The [Friday] Papers

Our countdown coverage to Election Day has begun with A Beachwood Candidate Questionnaire. More to come between now and Tuesday.

On to the news.

Disturbed Disturbed
"Two members of the Chicago rock band Disturbed have asked a Kentucky attorney to quit distributing a political flier that implies they are guilty of child pornography and other crimes," the Tribune reports.

"Campbell County Attorney James A. Daley has been using the flier in a political race, according to band members David Draiman and Dan Donegan."

Mad Mike Madigan
"Madigan is not known for giving extensive interviews and would prefer to stay at arm's length from any inquisitive reporters," Joe Boyle writes for the Southwest News-Herald.


"Madigan essentially told a receptive crowd of business owners and community leaders to not believe everything you read about him."

It's not true what they write about me and they would know it if I only agreed to answer their questions!

Off Wisconsin
White House gives up.

My Waterloo
"Waterloo police say criminals apparently took the day off earlier this week," AP reports.

"According to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, police made no arrests on Tuesday, apparently a first for the city in quite some time."

As a former Waterloo Courier police reporter, I can say that maybe they just lost the reports.

Chicago Math
"And that memorable [JFK] trip down the Fox River Valley - 50 years ago this week - may well have tipped a tight Illinois race and the presidential election Kennedy's way," the Tribune reports.

The myth that Illinois gave JFK his victory persists, but the fact is that Kennedy won by 97 electoral votes (303-209). Illinois was then worth 27 electoral votes.

The Tinley Triangle
"Witnesses and believers are gathering this weekend to discuss the Halloween sighting of those famous three red lights reported hovering above Tinley Park six years ago," the Tribune reports.

"To recognize the anniversary of the mass-sighting events on Aug. 21 and Oct. 31 2004, Sam Maranto, president of the Illinois Chapter of the Mutual UFO Network, said the Tinley Park phenomena will be discussed during a special presentation 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Orland Park Library.

"'The Tinley Park sighting was one of the best mass sightings ever recorded,' he said. 'The 911 centers were being bombarded in the south suburbs.'"


Or it could have just been this.

Junior Mint
"Jesse Jackson Jr. Won't Endorse For Mayor."

Candidates breathe collective sigh of relief.

You Are Getting Sleepy
"Skokie Chamber of Commerce member Karen Hand received the Hypnotist of the Year Award at the recent Mid-America Hypnosis Conference," the Tribune reports.

Um, couldn't you just hypnotize the judges to make you the winner?

Brain Drain
"Thieves continue to plague Arlington Heights as a total of 20 storm drain covers have been stolen in a three-week period, police said," the Daily Herald reports.

"Arlington Heights police noted that the storm drain covers are part of worldwide metal thefts because it is cheaper to recycle metal than to mine it."

Plus, criminals have gone green too.

Exactly What The Facts Is
"Illinois is one of the lowest tax states and lowest-spending states in the nation," Phil Kadner writes today. "If you're like the three people I told that to in person, you're laughing."

But it's true. The income tax here is low. It's the corruption tax that's high.
