The [Monday] Papers

The Flying Saucer was the hit of the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend, and it was a blast working the booth with the fine Flying Saucer family, whom I'm proud to call my friends. Also, a shout-out to Naomi from TipsyCake, who served scrumptious sweets, and the folks at Mana for their version of the White Castle slider.

I didn't get a chance to check out the actual crafts, but I can at least report that rock poster guru Jay Ryan was there along with these artisans.

Now let's see if I catch up with the news.

The Daley Show
"Daley: Feds Should Investigate Mayoral Petitions."


And while they're here, they might want to look at this.

Pet Smarts
"Thieves have struck again at a pet store in Aurora. For the fourth time in less than a year, exotic birds have been stolen from Petland on Route 59." Fox Chicago News reports.

"The store is considering new security measures for birds to prevent future thefts."


But first it will evaluate current procedures to see if there's a problem.

Blame Game
"A woman was arrested after she caused a Chicago police officer to accidentally Taser himself," WGN-TV reports.


The police department did not say whether it would review current procedures to see if there's a problem.

Isn't It Unironic?
The Beachwood jukebox is broad and deep, but it's filled with plenty of material like this and I, for one, mean it. Great songwriting is often unrecognized.

Beachwood Monday Night!
Speaking of the Beachwood jukebox, come check it out tonight - I'll be back behind the bar slinging Old Styles and all manner of Bell's beers, as well as our amazingly cheap bottom shelf special. Also, free pizza. But it's the jukebox that keeps everyone coming back.

Anger Management
"A Chicago plaintiffs lawyer who compared a federal appeals panel to Simon Cowell of American Idol fame 'may wish to moderate his fury,' according to an opinion denying the lawyer's petition for a rehearing," the ABA Journal reports.

"The lawyer, Clinton Krislov of Krislov & Associates in Chicago, objects to a ruling by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that ordered a broad injunction barring his class-action litigation against Sears Roebuck, the National Law Journal reports. In a petition for rehearing, Krislov expressed his objections 'in tones of outrage that were 'over the top,' according to a Dec. 2 opinion (PDF posted by the National Law Journal) by the Chicago-based appeals court.

"Krislov contends Sears engaged in deceptive advertising by touting its stainless steel clothes dryers without revealing that some parts could rust and stain clothes."

Man Bites Man
"Dunkin' Donuts commissioned a survey to determine which gingerbread man cookie part people eat first. The survey results showed that a majority of people bite the head off the gingerbread cookie first. Legs and arms came in second and third, respectively, with legs getting 20% of the vote, and arms getting 16%," Gather reports.

"Dunkin' Donuts consulted with Dr. Alan Hirsch of the Smell and Taste Treatment of Research Foundation in Chicago to determine a bit of the psychology behind people's cookie-eating preferences. Hirsch speculated that 'head first [eating] . . . indicates an achievement-oriented individual . . . who won't take no for an answer.'"

Buyer's Remorse
"Should Progressives Have Chosen Clinton Over Obama in 2008?"

Duty Calls
"A police officer has sued the City of Chicago (on behalf of himself and others) seeking pay for time spent dealing with work-related phone calls, voice-mails, e-mails, text messages, and work orders via BlackBerry devices and similar 'personal digital assistants,'" Labor Letter reports. "The officer contends that these activities entitle the group to an award of overtime compensation under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

"The potential for these claims has been lurking for awhile now, and the relevant FLSA principles are not new. What has changed is this: the explosion of 24/7 electronic communication has increased the frequency and expanded the circumstances, in which non-exempt employees perform after-hours and off-premises work. Join this with the strict requirements of a 70-year-old law that was designed for a bygone era, and you have the recipe for a lawsuit extravaganza."
