The [Friday] Papers

Just a shorty today.

1. TL;DR.

So did the Sun-Times get it wrong or is Forrest Claypool full of shit?

2. Bradley Manning: The Face of Heroism.

"Manning also said he 'first approached three news outlets: the Washington Post, New York Times and Politico' before approaching WikiLeaks."

3. Point of Light.

"Though none of the schools in question fell in his ward, Ald. Scott Waguespack (32nd) said he just wanted to show his support, and noted the absence of a certain someone at the community engagement meetings," DNAinfo Chicago reports.

"The one person who should be here tonight is Rahm Emanuel. He should be at every one of these meetings listening to people," he said. "That's all I've got to say is 'Where are ya?'"

Answer: Busy doing important mayor stuff.

4. Kingpins.

"Two years after Chicago Public Schools kicked french fries and cheese-laden nachos off lunch menus in favor of fresh fruits and vegetables, many teachers still are trying to persuade students to give dishes like hummus and cucumber slices a try," the Tribune reports.

Maybe that's because Corporate America has worked so hard to turn them into addicts.

5. QT: A Matter Of Opinion.

Americans are evenly divided about unity.

6. The Week In Chicago Rock.

They played weird stuff at a venue near you.

7. The Chambers Report.

Tony La Russa & The Art Of The Cliché.
