The [Friday] Papers

Really jammed up this morning, just a few items and then we'll crank it back up next week.

1. "There was no Jay Cutler, no Matt Forte, no Brian Urlacher, no Julius Peppers and practically no offense for the Bears on Thursday night at Soldier Field," Joe Stevenson writes for the DeKalb Daily Chronicle in Whole Lot Of Nothing.

"Backup Jason Campbell started in place of Cutler and played the first quarter before Josh McCown took over. The offense gained only 41 yards in the first half and 132 for the game."

2. "[T]he way it's done in Chicago, the Chicago Way, is offensive and illegal," departing FBI bureau chief Robert Grant tells John Kass. "And after all these years doing these prosecutions, behavior hasn't modified significantly and won't change, until people start holding public officials to a much higher standard. There are aldermen who have networks of relationships, real estate firms, law firms, service firms, and you can't get a permit passed unless you do business with those entities connected to the family."

3. "Parking tickets revenues are a giant cash cow for the city, generating $154.4 million in annual revenue," Fran Spielman notes in the Sun-Times. "It's one of the biggest single sources of cash outside the city's annual property tax levy and revenue Chicago can ill afford to lose at a time when it's facing a $369 million budget shortfall."

The city wants you to violate parking rules! And so does Fran Spielman! The city's budget depends on it.
