The [Friday] Papers

I thought this photo of a police officer standing with a boot on the dying Cedrick Chatman . . .

. . . paired well with this photo of a black man who at least survived his encounter as a trophy:

Summers Time
The CTU notes that city treasurer Kurt Summers was at their MLK breakfast this morning, held as an alternative to the mayor's breakfast out of anger at Rahm over the Laquan McDonald case, among other insults and missteps.

The Tribune's Bill Ruthhart notes, though, that Summers also attended Rahm's breakfast.

I note that Summers not only attended Rahm's breakfast, but looked awfully chummy with him (that's Kurt in the middle):

"Food's a lot better over here, Chief!"

(Photo by Brian Jackson for the Sun-Times; I hope it's within fair use to steal it in this context. If not, I apologize and will remove, because I take that seriously.)

Summers is running for something; some say mayor. He's been visible at a bunch of community meetings in recent months all over the city. And he's adept at playing both sides of the street - he's a Preckwinkle guy who got appointed to his current job by the mayor.
