The [Friday] Papers

1. "To convince smokers to 'go cold turkey' during the American Cancer Society's 36th Great American Smokeout, organizers are planning to utilize the real thing - frozen turkeys - for a bowling event Nov. 16 on the SIU Carbondale campus," the Southern reports.

It'll look a little bit like this:


*

2. America's dads have a reminder for you.

*

3. "Federal prosecutors say Tony Rezko deserves to spend up to 15 years in prison for his crimes in two separate cases and that he damaged his own credibility by lying to the court," the Sun-Times reports.

Remember when he had a crush on Obama?

*

4. "While corporations get a cut in their head tax, poor Chicagoans will see the city services they rely on - health centers, child care, workforce development, mental health treatment, library services and the like - get smaller and, in some cases, disappear."

*

5. "This summer, Mayor Rahm Emanuel talked his former boss, President Obama, into bringing two simultaneous meetings of the world's most powerful politicians and military leaders to Chicago for the annual G8 and NATO summits," the Chicago Journal reports.

"Now, as the pieces are falling into place for next May's event, the city and South Loop institutions are shuffling, adjusting and preparing for the crush of international dignitaries - and protestors - that are expected to descend upon the city."

It'll probably be something like this:

*

6. The Week in Chicago Rock.

Sample:

*

7. The American Autumn on RT.

Sample:

*

8. The [Cellini] Papers.

Bonus:

*

9. TrackNotes: America's Big Weekend.

Bonus:

*

10. The Week in WTF.

They're not out of it yet.
