The [Friday] Papers

I thought my column on Thursday told you everything you needed to know about Jackie Robinson West, at least from a punditry point of view, seeing as how I didn't delve deeply into the reporting details, but it turns out I was wrong - and for just that reason.

In this week's Beachwood Radio Sports Hour, our very own Jim "Coach" Coffman brings some of that reporting to light that seems to have escaped most commentators - facts that make a big difference in how one might perceive what has happened. I encourage you to listen.

Beachwood Photo Booth: Penn-Dutchman Is Done
Our very own Helene Smith took a photo of Penn-Dutchman Antiques in Lincoln Square in September. She was back there last week and found it was closed. Now we have two photos of Penn-Dutchman Antiques.

The Week In Chicago Rock
The winter doldrums, admittedly. Still, we've got Machine Head, Napalm Death, and Bad Suns.

The Beachwood Radio Hour
Is in pre-production. I'm going to talk about David Carr this week, among other things. The most common word I see and hear from Carr's old Minnesota friends to describe their relationships/friendships with Carr is "complicated." Somehow, I never crossed paths with Carr, even though we shared part of the same orbit in Minneapolis back in the day. My feelings about Carr are complicated too, though - for other reasons. I hope you'll give it a listen over the weekend, once I get it posted.
