The [Monday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes

Ugh. I'm feeling really groggy and there's also a ton of stuff I didn't get to over the weekend that I really need to get to. I suppose a central irony to this whole venture is that the news keeps distracting me from constructing this as a business. It's hard to stay on top of everything. Stupid Olympics. Stupid Obama. Stupid Daley. You're bankrupting me!

Anyway, we do have a few things to offer today, and we'll be back with a full Beachwood tomorrow.

* "You win because of the quarterback," George Ofman writes. "Bears General Manager Jerry Angelo uttered those prophetic words at the beginning of the year. And now the Denver Broncos are saying the same thing."

* Joel Quenneville should watch his back.

* "My class, about 20 people, sat at tables while a veteran guard went through the basics," Jerome Haller writes as he recounts how he became a security guard. "The instructor was a gung-ho type who had once worked as a state trooper. He ridiculed reporters and public defenders, calling them naive types who wanted to link arms and sing 'Kumbaya.' He bragged about screwing the latter by ripping pages from his notebooks before submitting them for evidence."


* Hailing Columbus. Imagining how our esteemed pols are spending the day.

* Daley's New Nemesis. Stop me from cheating again!

* Cook County Race-Baiting. Davis, Stroger play the white man's game.
