The [Friday] Papers

Getting a rare Friday column of sorts up post-podcast today.

Meanwhile . . .


*

The Temperance Beer Co. is an Evanston outfit, and I'm usually not keen on suburban beers - or suburban anythings - because suburbs.

But this was a better choice than the Goose Island "Born + Raised" Chicago-style ale, which I sampled.

Being a self-described "Chicago-style" ale, I asked the bartender to drag it through the garden, but I was informed that the Chicago-style they are trying to make a thing of is the corn that's in it. And that it's "creamy." Creamed corn beer. It was not for me.

Also, from my OKCupid profile questionnaire (I'm the horse):

New on the Beachwood today . . .

As Global Temps Soared, U.S. Media Coverage Of Right-Wing Think Tanks' Climate Lies Rose Over Last 5 Years
"A new Public Citizen analysis shows that over the last five years - as rising global temperatures repeatedly set records - national television news networks and the 50 most widely circulated newspapers in the United States increased their coverage of right-wing think tanks denying the climate emergency or that the global crisis is the result of unsustainable human activity.

"'Amazingly, coverage of the deniers' messages has risen over the past five years as the climate crisis has worsened, with much of it being uncritical,' said Allison Fisher, outreach program director for Public Citizen's climate program. 'The media should not give these organizations a platform, and if they must cover them, do a better job of alerting readers and viewers who is funding them.'"

I just don't understand. It's not hard to get it right.
