The [Friday] Papers

1. I would love to see Alexi Giannoulias jump into the mayoral race just to see if Rahm Emanuel attacks him as a mob banker.

2. Stay classy, Todd.

3. Sick of the Ricketts' yet?

4. The art of headline writing.

5. The Week in Chicago Rock.

6. "There is a Chicago connection to the Carnival Cruise ship that was stranded off the coast of California: 60 people who work for the CTA were on that cruise," Fox Chicago News reports.


"Blue Island residents Terry and Glinda Fisher were among the thousands of passengers disembarking the ship," AP reports. They were scheduled to return to Chicago, where their 24-year-old son Tim was planning to pick them up from Midway Airport this evening.

"'My girlfriend read about it online on Monday and asked me if this was the ship my parents were on. My mom had sent me a picture of the ship before we boarded, so I looked it up and knew it was them,' he said Thursday night. 'I was like, What? The one they're on is on fire and they're stranded in the middle of nowhere? I don't freak out that easily, but I thought a lot about it.'"

7. "Visitors to the Portage Park area of Chicago, in the city's northwest side, may find themselves traveling down Lech Kaczynski Way," the Warsaw Business Journal reports. "A one kilometer stretch of the area's North Central Avenue has been honorarily renamed after the former Polish president, who died along with 95 others in the April 10 plane crash in Russia."

8. "Anyone looking to satisfy a sweet tooth will be pleased to hear that Classic Cobbler has opened in Chicago Heights," the SouthtownStar reports.

10. "A man was sentenced to 10 days of work release after pleading guilty to pelting a North Central College security officer's vehicle with condoms filled with what appeared to be vomit," the Sun-Times reports.

11. "Some of us really care about our communities, and that's not what's being promoted," aldermanic candidate Rhymefest tells Viva Fidel Radio. "You know, the biggest challenge that I've had since the beginning of this campaign is the perception that a rapper can't be nothing more than an ignorant nigger."

12. "I'd say on some levels Minnesota was much more run by gangsters than Chicago was."

13. "The judge in Tribune Co.'s bankruptcy case approved more than $40 million in 2010 incentive bonuses for 635 of its operating managers and executives Wednesday," the Tribune reports.


"Tribune Co creditors asked a Delaware judge to let them try to recover millions of dollars awarded to insiders in the year prior to the media company's bankruptcy, saying they can do a better job than Tribune can," Reuters reports.

"In a Thursday court filing, Tribune's official committee of unsecured creditors said it wants current and former Tribune officers and directors to return more than $250 million of awards, including bonuses and restricted stock."

14. The Week in Comic Books.

15. Live At Eleven: A Beachwood Poem.

16. "The jockey had murder in his eye, the chef cooked up a winner, and pari-mutuel integrity was fully compromised. And that was just on the first day," our man on the rail Tom Chambers writes in TrackNotes: As The Breeders' Cup Turned.

17. The World's Greatest College Football Report: Let The Bloodletting Begin!
