The [Monday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes

* The Beachwood is now the exclusive Chicago carrier of Ask Ellie! (See lower left rail.)

* Is adding Dear Abby to its lineup an effort by the Sun-Times to steal some of the Tribune's oldest readers? What's next, a bridge column?

* The Sun-Times editorial board, as it were, having fewer members than the Cubs have had playoff appearances, is a pushover. The new FOIA bill sucks, and I've never understood why the media in this state hasn't made a full-court press for a real Sunshine Act.

* I've thought about finding my first Camaro too! Mine was a 1975.

* This parking meter thing really wasn't thought through.

* Damn you, Larry Wood!

* "Could Google's New 'Web Elements' Help Newspapers?"

* Could it help GM?

* Google Motors!

* "The investigative team at WBNS-Columbus reported that Michael Randle has been selected as the new head of corrections in Illinois, leaving his position as Ohio's assistant director of the Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections," IRE notes.

"Randle leaves Ohio amid an Inspector General's investigation into his role with a contractor who bought furniture from the Department of Corrections. In March, 10 Investigates discovered Randle's Ohio State University fraternity brother had landed a deal that allowed him to purchase state made furniture for less than other state agencies could purchase the same furniture."

* Dug out by Frank Coconate:

* University of Illinois President Joe White and Urbana Chancellor Richard Herman are the state's two highest-paid employees, Chuck Goudie reports.

"More than the governor, the mayor, the Chicago police chief, state Supreme Court justices or anybody else (unless you count U of I's football coach.)"

* Reading With Scissors. Inflatable home theater; shopping for artificial knees.

* Ferdy on Films. The debuts of DePalma, DeNiro; Star Trek.
