The [Friday] Papers

This week's installment of The Beachwood Radio Hour is in production!

I know some of you have maybe, um, sort of lost patience with our technological flubs, and maybe we haven't totally nailed the content mix yet, but I urge you - nay, beg you! - to keep listening. If you go back and watch the first season of Seinfeld - or even old Family Guys - you'll see that it can take time for greatness to develop. We are very close. We are also short of resources. But we're giving good radio.

On that note, here's this week's edition of The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour: Chicago Held Hostage.

And don't be afraid to share our podcasts widely. No one will hold it against you.

1. Rauner Launches TV Ads Against Quinn.

They are titled Change The Conversation, Distract From The Real Issues, Let's Go Back To Pretending I'm Not Rich, Make Everyone Forget I'm A Republican, and Let's Spend Like Drunken Sailors With Our Message That If Elected We Won't Spend Like Drunken Sailors.

2. Cicero Recreates Pamplona Bull Stampede.

It would be too obvious to say that can't end well, so . . .

A) Who has the medical contract?

B) Who sold the insurance?

C) Who has the concessions?

Follow the money, not the bull.

3. Construction Starts Soon On Weber Grills Project In Huntley.

Here's an idea: A Museum of The Grilling Arts. On those two Soldier Field parking lots where the Star Wars museum wants to build. You really wouldn't have to do anything except put up a sign and charge tourists admission.

4. Polar Vortex May Return To Chicago Next Week.

Rahm shuffles vacation plans.

Also:

-

5. Beanie Baby Billionaire Balks At The Big House.

How about a public shaming in Daley Plaza? Society can exact its justice by beating him mercilessly with brass Princess Bears.

*

No, but seriously; it's not funny.

U.S. District Judge Charles Kocoras was right to give Warner credit for his lifetime of "concern and generosity to others," they wrote.

Kocoras - visibly moved by the 70 letters of support sent by beneficiaries of Warner's largesse, including charities and sick employees he helped - gushed in January that Warner had exhibited a "depth of humanity" that he had never seen in any other criminal defendant.

He noted at the time that the enormous $53 million fine Warner agreed to pay dwarfed the estimated $5 million in taxes he dodged and said: "Society will be best served by allowing him to continue to do his good works."

No, society will be best served by observing a form of justice that doesn't allow the wealthy a free pass because they bought a Get Out of Jail Free card with their ill-gotten gains.

6. Expo Dedicated To Adult Film Industry Opens In Rosemont.

Let the media titillation begin.

7. Riverwalk Barge Sinks.

Investigators suspect the weight of Rahm's bullshit finally became too much.

8. Beachwood Photo Booth: Chicago Garage.

Urban landscape.

9. The Week In Chicago Rock.

Featuring: Kevin Abstract, Michael Christmas, Casey Veggies, ZMoney, Sunny Day in Glasgow, Lightfoils, RIVAL SONS, Janelle Monáe, AWOLNATION, Paul McCartney, Excision, Joey Purp, Finch, Sargeist, Orange Line, Dead on TV, Afrojack, Behexen, and the Flat Five.

10. The Week In Juvenile Justice.

From Humboldt Park to Hawaii.
