The [Monday] Papers

1. "Rod Run To Be Held Saturday."

Though it's not what I thought it was, you can't tell me it wasn't plausible.

2. "Boeing Again Delays Dreamliner Release."

Don't worry. Glenn Beck will fill in.

3. "Lisa and Michael Madigan helped ensure that a new law was passed concerning payday loan operators," the Sun-Times reports. "That law could benefit a client of Jordan Matyas, husband of Michael Madigan's daughter Tiffany."

I propose a new law: Conspiracy to commit cynicism.

4. From our good friends at NBCChicago, natch: "Uncovering The Peek-A-Boo-Bra Trend."

Next: Suits are back.

5. International Polka Association.

6. "The peripatetic life prompted Loh and writer-friend Calvin Trillin to form a fictitious 'society' called 'American Correspondents Covering America,' whose imaginary meetings were held at Chicago's O'Hare Airport."

Jules Edward Loh was 79.

7. "Surrogate parents of newborn triplets claim a hospital and major media outlets violated medical privacy laws and subjected them to 'humiliation, embarrassment and emotional distress' by publishing photos and stories about their newborns," Courthouse News Service reports. "The parents say they never gave Advocate Christ Medical Center permission to release personal information about them or their babies, nor did they agree that the Sun Times, Tribune Co. or WLS-TV could photograph and publish the babies' pictures."

8. "7-11 Tests Roasted Chicken."

9. "State Representative Seeking To Move Indiana To Central Time Zone."

Next: Suits are back.

10. "American, Frontier, JetBlue, and United have just posted secret unadvertised sale fares in response to Virgin America's newest sale, but here's the catch: The low fares from all five airlines are slated to disappear at 11:59 p.m. PT tonight," SmarterTravel reports. "These promotional fares start at $49 one-way ($98 round-trip)."

11. Preseason NFL games matter after all (at least for the Bears), our very own Jim Coffman writes.

12. "They don't really want their consumers to know that Stacy's, which is owned by PepsiCo's Frito-Lay, is making their pita chips," NPR reports. "They would rather you think it's Trader Joe's brand."

13. "Violence and crime do not lead the discussion among members of the City Council committee overseeing violence and crime," the Chicago News Cooperative reports.

"An analysis to be released Tuesday by the Chicago Justice Project, a nonprofit focused on increasing access to criminal justice data, shows that 40 percent of the 148 agenda items considered from 2006 through 2009 by the Council's Committee on Police and Fire concerned the donation of old equipment, mostly police and fire vehicles, to communities in Iraq, Mexico and elsewhere.

"In contrast, just 1 percent had anything to do with crime or violence."

Talk about the code of silence . . .

14. Sox still trying to reassemble 1996 Indians team.

15. The Cubs play Q Ball.

16. If you watched Mad Men last night, you'll be particularly amused by this if you watch it until the end.
