The [Monday] Papers
1. Wow, what's next, Blackhawks drop Chief Blackhawk?
2. "When he arrives at the Markham courthouse, Adam receives a hero's homecoming," the Tribune reports. "It's one of his first appearances there since the trial began, and seemingly everyone wants to talk to him. Sheriff's deputies and defense attorneys hug him and offer their congratulations, while a fully robed judge steps off the bench and goes into the hallway to shake his hand.
"Another judge welcomes him back, then criticizes some rulings that Zagel made against the Blagojevich defense team."
Isn't that, um, inappropriate?
Name that judge!
"For his 90 minutes inside the building, Adam seems to forget his nervousness and reverts back to his gregarious ways. He trades kisses, fist bumps and hearty backslaps with people in the lobby. He waves as deputies point him out to young children and tell them that he's the ex-governor's lawyer.
"Though Adam later admits he recognized only 10 percent of the non-courthouse personnel who approached him, he acts as if everyone is a long-lost friend. He's like a kid who spent two long months at summer camp and is relieved to finally come home.
"'These are my people,' he says. 'They're salt of the earth. They're not interested in ego.'"
Just like you, Sam.
