The [Monday] Papers
* "Really, just a normal week of Ozzie Guillen's White Sox," our very own Ricky O'Donnell writes in his White Sox Report. "Simply a 4-3 record, with a little blow-up doll action, a near no-hitter, and some Cubs-bashing sprinkled in. Nothing to see here."
* "It's time, people. Time to hop on the Cub Train. And like the CTA, it's on fire," our very own Marty Gangler writes in The Cub Factor.
* "How about it, Jerry Reinsdorf? How about for once acknowledging you blew it and you're sick about it?" our very own Jim Coffman writes in SportsMonday.
God, we're good.
The Daley Show
Feel free to leave a comment.
And who is the chairman of the Illinois Democratic Party? Jones's archenemy, Mike Madigan.
* I've got news for Ickes residents: whatever happens will not be in your best interest.
* By the way, when I was at the Tribune 15 years ago I was told you couldn't use the word "project" to describe, um, a housing project. Instead, you had to use the word "development." Apparently that's still the rule.
The museum pitched their plan to children? Have they no shame?
"As the children munched on pretzels and drank from juice boxes at the Harris Park Field House, Jim Law, the museum's vice president of planning and external affairs, said the project was good for families."
Jim Law, the museum's vice president of planning and external affairs, spun a bunch of kids sipping from juice boxes?
"The town hall meeting was organized by Georgette Greenlee-Finney, executive director of a community group called the Woodlawn Organization. 'This evening was about making sure that decisions that affect all of us just don't happen within the confines of a few people who have $400, $500, $600 and $700,000 to live next door to Grant Park,' she told the crowd."
Did anyone ask why the museum didn't consider locating in Woodlawn then?
"No opponents of the proposal spoke Thursday night."
I'm pretty sure none were invited. Wouldn't want to confuse the kids.
"At the end of the meeting, the children were told to fill out a card urging aldermen to 'support this museum for children from our neighborhood.'"
Oh. My. God.
A) Were they registered to vote, too?
Let's put all the adults underground.
Fun With Fermilab
* Scientists will use one less dimension.
* E will now equal just MC.
* Quark division will be merged with accounting; new double-entry bookkeeping system will feature money that is or isn't there.
The S-T forgot to note the emoticon ; at the end of the memo.
Just in case there's anyone out there who doesn't think every decision coming out of City Hall these days is refracted through the Olympic lens.
