A discount-store employee is time-warped to a medieval castle, where he is the foretold savior who can dispel the evil there. Unfortunately, he screws up and releases an army of skeletons. (

The [Monday] Papers

"The game was a classic set-up and the pivotal play 50 minutes in the making," our very own Jim Coffman writes.

"In fact, the Bears had been laying the groundwork for Jay Cutler's clinching fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Kellen Davis for months."


The view from Minnesota, though, was of a three-phase failure against a lesser team. (Same link.)

Did Apple ruin the North & Clybourn station?

We're With Madigan
"In one corner stands the media and attorney general Lisa Madigan. In the other stands one of the most powerful unions in the state," the Springfield State Journal-Register reports.

"The Illinois Press Association says its top priority for the Illinois General Assembly's upcoming veto session is preventing an override of Gov. Pat Quinn's veto of House Bill 5154, which would bar disclosure of government employee performance evaluations in response to Freedom of Information Act requests.

"On the other hand, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31 says it will push hard for an override so that performance evaluations of state employees won't be released to anyone who happens to ask."

We Salute You
Oak Forest man to be inducted into White Castle Hall of Fame.


Excerpt from the essay that got him there.


Lester Talcott of Crystal Lake was also among this year's 13 inductees.


Among those previously inducted: Gera-Lind Kolarik, former ABC7 field producer.

Hawaiian Punch
- "Killer's New Life In Hawaii Sparks Outrage."

- "EIU Murderer Paroled: Justin Boulay To Move To Hawaii With New Wife."

- From the Trib's archives: "College Roommate Details Slain Woman's Last Day."


"KITV4 News has learned that convicted Illinois killer Justin Boulay, 33, is far from the first mainland killer to travel to the islands for parole. Hawaii is home to seven people convicted of killing or trying to kill others on the mainland."

We Wuz Robbed
"Chicago's agreement for a Morgan Stanley partnership to run its parking meters for 75 years, expected to cost drivers $11.6 billion, has Indianapolis, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles rethinking their own deals," Bloomberg reports.

"Indianapolis, whose city council plans to vote tonight on a proposal with Xerox Co.'s Affiliated Computer Services, would rather take less money up front in favor of more total fees in its 50-year transaction. It also wants something Chicago didn't get: exit clauses that let the city end the lease."

Earmark Irony
"Another outsider who's keeping close watch over the conference vote is Joe Ricketts, the owner of the Chicago Cubs and former chief executive of TD Ameritrade," the National Review reports. "Ricketts founded a new political-action committee, Taxpayers Against Earmarks, earlier this year, and funneled millions into anti-earmark ads aired during the 2010 midterms.

"On his website,, Ricketts is charting the current whip count in the caucus, based on public statements."


I mean, I know this isn't an earmark, but . . .


"It's Not Just Chargers Who Would Fleece Insolvent Political Entity."
