The [Friday] Papers

The Papers will be sporadic this week as I'm on a freelance deadline that is sucking my brain apart and redistributing it to all corners of the universe, but we'll still have plenty of good material throughout the site. Here's today's:


God and Facebook.

* Whether Chicago.

With awesome bonus video.

* Illinois Department Of Agriculture Gets The Super Bowl Party Started.

With Ray's Brand Chilli and Uncle Joe's Sauces and Rubs.

* The Week In Chicago Rock.

Including Soundgarden, Ellie Goulding, Stone Sour, the Robert Cornelius 7, The Darkness and Papa Roach.


* Brandon Marshall's Priceless Surprise.

* Mark Grace Sentenced To Four Months In Jail.

* The White House's Curious Silence About Obama's Skeet Shooting Claim.

* "The Flaming Lips are very much like Hyundai," company marketing veep Steve Shannon said. "They're a little offbeat. They've been around a long time and they continue to reinvent themselves."

* Durex Launches Emergency Condom Delivery Service.

* Maria Chudzinski Closes Down Polish Air Force's Chicago Wing.

* "Do all Chicago public high schools really need two Chicago police officers stationed inside them every day - at a cost of $25 million a year?" the Sun-Times reported in July 2011.

"The tab for police service - begun under former Mayor Richard M. Daley - recently more than tripled, prompting Chicago Public School officials faced with a $712 million deficit to start taking a hard look at whether every penny of that cost is being spent effectively."

* "James L. Koutoulas, a Chicago hedge fund manager who became a voice for thousands of customers whose money disappeared," the New York Times reports.

"While Mr. Koutoulas continues to fight, it has come with collateral damage. After he appeared on CNBC in 2011 to criticize JPMorgan Chase over its role in the bankruptcy, the bank closed his account and froze his credit card."

* "I think the night life here has really deteriorated tremendously in the past five or six years, which saddens me a lot. It used to be that there were a ton of great venues and shows, and there's a lot less of that now. And while there is a wealth of culture and music and great musicians here, there aren't a lot of industry opportunities. I'm at a point in my career where I'm looking for more high-profile remix work, production work - and those gigs just don't exist here."


* Mission Accomplished: Obama Shuts Down Jobs Council.

* New Pawn Shop Likely Coming To North Avenue.
