The [Friday] Papers

1. Weekend Beachwood Radio product is in production!

2. "Harold's Chicken Goes After 'Bogus' Store Owners."

Maybe because the bogus chicken is better!


Let's just say I've always found the Harold's in Wicker Park to be wanting; I haven't had Harold's anywhere else in years.


The story:

"At least seven restaurants calling themselves Harold's Chicken Shack don't have an agreement with the company to use its name, according to Kristen Pierce-Sherrod, president of Harold's Chicken Shack Corporation," DNAinfo Chicago reports.

In April, Pierce-Sherrod told Mary Mitchell of the Sun-Times that bogus Harold's franchises starting popping up about five years ago.


By the way, my understanding is that Harold's merely licenses the name; it's "franchises" aren't franchises in the sense that you get the same thing at every shack, because you don't.

* The Fried Chicken King.
* Holiday Harold's.

3. The Week In Juvenile Justice.

From CPS nonsense to CIA rendition, with stops in Wisconsin, Indiana and Rikers Island.

4. "After graduating from The Brandery's accelerator in October, Konrad Billetz was fully prepared to launch his business, which allows customers to use one pair of lenses with multiple eyeglass frames, in Chicago," the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

"Billetz and chief technology officer Kevin Habich had already moved to the Windy City and were raising venture capital when CincyTech's offer brought Frameri back to town.

"Two weeks ago, the start-up announced it will move into office space at Emanuel Community Center in Over-the-Rhine, and that it's raised a $750,000 round led by CincyTech.

"CincyTech made us an offer that we couldn't turn down," Billetz said. "It was the right decision to do for the business."

Except you have to live in Cincinnati.

5. Morgan Stanley Dumps Potbelly.

6. Beachwood Photo Booth: Chicago Geometry.

Puddles and progressions, shapes and colors.

7. The Week In Chicago Rock.

Featuring: Dan Navarro, Twin Hits, Yoko and the Oh No's, Savage Sister, Spoon, Cherry Glazerr, Wooden Shjips, Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews & Orleans Avenue, Cultura Prof├ętica, Stooges Brass Band, and Tori Amos.


* Walgreens CFOs Make Bank.

* New York Times Finally Acknowledges We Tortured Some Folks.

If it's torture now, it was torture then; yet another huge failure on the part of the nation's most influential newspaper to accurately report the actions of the American government when it mattered most. The mainstream media has already had to acknowledge how badly they failed to report the run-up to the Iraq War, which haunts the world to this day. Times Editor Dean Baquet has also acknowledged his own naivete in the paper's withholding from publication for a year a story of George W. Bush's illegal wiretapping program. Do they ever learn? No, because the problem isn't of a single story here or there, or lapses of judgement that will occur due to human imperfection. The problem is in the very way the vast majority of journalists do their jobs, and even more importantly, in the way they think. It's about a mindset. Too few journalists think like journalists. It's a worldview.


There's never an egg-timer around when you need one.
