The [Friday] Papers

"A three-star Army general from Chicago was removed from a top post at the Pentagon on Thursday amid misconduct allegations," the Tribune reports.

"Lt. Gen. Ronald Lewis, who was profiled in a front-page story in the Tribune in January, will no longer be the senior military assistant to Defense Secretary Ash Carter, according to a Pentagon statement."

Link mine.

Also, when does "front page" lose its meaning?

Hearts & Minds

I've watched this show come together this year from my front-row seat at AnySquared Studio, which is also where I live and do much of my work. Highly recommended.

Drone Moan
"Chicago aldermen on Thursday tried to get their arms around the fast-evolving, increasingly popular practice of flying unmanned drones over the city, advancing a set of rules meant to protect low-flying jets, fans at outdoor events, schoolchildren and others from the remote-controlled craft," the Tribune reports.

A bit of patented City Council theater failed to develop at the meeting, when drone video company president Colin Hinkle declined Burke's invitation to pilot one of the craft in council chambers. "I would rather not," Hinkle said. "All these cameras here, that sounds like the YouTube moment of the week."

Geez, don't invite Hinkle to the next company party - though if Hinkle had been around to advise him, Michael Dukakis would have never put on that helmet.

Hinkle, by the way, is a freelance photographer for CBS 2 and ABC 7.
