The [Monday] Papers

"Tomorrow we vote, but still no answers from Rahm on his cozy ties to Ticketmaster/Live Nation and Lollapalooza," Jim DeRogatis writes. "And part of the problem is that, unconscionably, no one else in the Chicago media has been asking the questions."

Sadly, but predictably, that's not the only issue the media has failed to examine when it comes to Rahm Emanuel's campaign. I can only hope that we get a runoff because I've got a lot of material I've been preparing myself that I'd like to get out.

Unlike the easy buffaloed press corps, though, I don't get paid to put in an honest 40 hours of work every week to perform this public service.

A lot of "reporters" in town could stand to learn from DeRogatis. But 20 years in Chicago has taught me that the media will never learn - never learn, that is, how to do their jobs properly.

"Even a child must realize that establishment Chicago - the media, political and corporate elites - has been pounding the drums for Rahm Emanuel for mayor," John Kass wrote earlier this month.

That is demonstrably true, as I will soon show.

*

Also from Kass: "A win for bossism is a loss for democracy: After years in the dark, voters look for a boss to lead them back into the cave."

Chicago, you disgust me.

Game Over
"A Tribute To The Death Of Dibs Deadline."

On Task
"At This Chicago Employer, Asperger's Syndrome Is A Job Requirement."

Duerson Vs. Ditka
They had issues.

Betty Boop
"Since her return, Loren-Maltese has had a short stint working at a pizzeria and almost landed a job at a used car dealership until, according to her, a mobster told the dealership not to hire her," CBS2Chicago reports.

"How does she feel after hearing that a mobster from Elmwood Park doesn't think it's a good idea for her to work there?

"'Let's just say that it was the car dealership's loss,' Loren-Maltese responded."

*

Apparently unasked:

- What does the mob have against you?

- Are you saying the car dealer was extorted?

- Did you report this to the police?

- You seem to know just which mobster from the Elmwood Park crew that it was. Care to name names?

*

Truck Stop
Does anyone else sense a corporate sponsorship here for our most likely new mayor?

Rahm's Base
"Less Than Half Of Emanuel's Money From Chicago."

*

I wonder what the race would look like if campaign contributions could only come from within the city limits - you know, residents.

Seasonal Aisle
"Most Winter Storm Warnings Expire For Chicago Area."

Dominick's keeps them on their shelves anyway.

Programming Note
I'll be back behind the bar tonight at the venerable Beachwood Inn slinging cold Old Style and monitoring the jukebox. Also, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. we'll be showing the new episode of The Chicago Code if enough interested parties show up; last week was a blast. "Irish Mob" definitely became the favorite signal to drink.

Also, feel free to bring this along for guidance.

Chicago Is Getting Old
"The link between large white elderly population and large youth minority population is quite intimate," our very own Kiljoong Kim writes.

Chicago Is Arterial
Ice men hangeth, and dead limbs bangeth to the curb.

The Weekend in Chicago Rock
You shoulda been there.
