The [Friday] Papers

It's always fun fighting with Donald Trump but let's not take our eye off the ball.

Mokena Soldier
"Private Aaron Toppen of southwest suburban Mokena died in what could be one of the worst friendly fire accidents of the 14-year-old war," WGN-TV reported Wednesday.

"The 19-year-old army private, deployed in March, was one of five US soldiers killed in a coalition air strike in southern Afghanistan."

Toppen's remains are now back on U.S. soil.

Boeing [Hearts] China
"Boeing Co. won its biggest order from a Chinese carrier as China Eastern Airlines Corp. agreed to buy 80 737 jets valued at $7.4 billion," Bloomberg reports.

"China Eastern, the nation's third-largest airline, will buy a mix of 737-800 and upgraded Max models, to be delivered starting in 2016, the company said in a statement to the Shanghai stock exchange. The carrier is also selling 15 older 737-300s and five 757s back to the planemaker, according to the statement."

CPS On The Side
"An ethics panel for the Baltimore County School Board has found that the superintendent Dallas Dance violated rules when he took a side job as a consultant for a company doing business with the Chicago Public School System," WBAL Radio reports.

And what was that side job?

"Over the summer, Dance agreed to train 10 Chicago principals once a month for $15,000 for a company called SUPES Academy," WBAL previously reported.

Which has ties to CPS chief Barbara Byrd-Bennett.
