The [Monday] Papers

1. Gov. Quinn inspires us with his reformist leadership once again.

2. "Pat Quinn the Democratic incumbent and a friend for 25 years has become a disappointment since he took over from the disgraced former Governor Rod Blagojevich," writes longtime social services advocate Doug Dobmeyer. "Unfortunately Pat has moved away from previous positions that had formed our friendship. He's just another Springfield politician now."

3. Daley Donor Bounced $884,509 In Checks To City Hall.

Or, the strange saga of Fred Latsko, the former driver for legendary Bear quarterback Sid Luckman who once bought a $7 million farm from Oprah and whose criminal record was once erased by Rod Blagojevich.

4. "Did you just hear that loud POP?" Prescott Carlson writes at Chicagoist.

"That was the anti-government pension types' collective heads exploding when they found out that Roy McCampbell, a former village administrator in Bellwood, is now collecting a pension of $252,689 a year - the highest in the state - after boosting his salary to $472,255 his last year before his retirement.

"According to a Chicago Tribune report, McCampbell achieved that feat by assigning himself 10 different job titles.

"Even without that supposed gaming of the system, McCampbell still would have been able to retire at age 55 with a cushy $180,000 a year pension. For sake of comparison, former U.S. Presidents currently receive a pension of $191,300 per year."

5. One of my favorite columnists, Kristen McQueary, checks out tea partiers in one of the more thoughtful takes you will find.

6. Morgan Stanley's $11 Billion Makes Chicago Taxpayers Cry.

Who's the redistributionist now?

7. 10 Little Known Facts About Chicago Facebook Users.

8. Illinois Man Changes His Name To "One Nation Under God."

Is he now also indivisible?

9. FEMA To Tour Cook, DuPage Homes for Flood Damage Today.

10. Cubs Continue To Explore New Depths In Futility.

If I had a nickel for every time I've seen that headline in my lifetime . . . I'd be rich enough to buy the Cubs.

NOTE: The Cub Factor will appear on Tuesday this week.

11. The Cage Match Is On.

Here come the Twins.

12. The Bears Are Back.

Sort of.

Maybe.

13. From John Cusack's Hot Tub Tweet Machine.
