The [Monday] Papers

1. WWII Bomber Crashes Near Aurora.

Finally runs out of fuel.

2. Crew Shortage Stops Six Metra Trains.

Because the labor market is so tight.

*

Hey, wait: There were seven survivors of that bomber crash . . .

3. Citigroup Kept Mum On Credit Card Hack For 3 Weeks.

You might say they had 0% interest.

4. Wendy's To Sell Off Arby's.

And lose the secret recipe to the Horsey Sauce?

*

There's just something inherently funny about that headline. The only thing that could make it better would be "Wendy's To Sell Arby's To Hardee's."

5. Board of Trade Building For Sale.

What better place to put a casino?

*

6. Another Chicago Dog Found In Fayetteville.

7. Daley Set To Face Cyborg on July 30th.

If only.

8. "Altogether, Sunday proved a triumphal final night for the Chicago Blues Festival in Grant Park, restoring the high spirits that had been dampened, literally and figuratively, by rainy weather and some weak performances during the annual free festival's first two days," Kevin McKeough writes for the Tribune.

9. "Sandburg High School (Orland Park, Ill.) senior Lukas Verzbicas . . . became the fifth high school runner to record a sub-four minute mile," SBNation reports. "He busted out a time of 3:59 Saturday, winning the Dream Mile at the Adidas Grand Prix in New York City."

10. "[Alfonso Soriano] sort of sauntered his way around left field - taking a slow, safe route to a looping single in the left-center gap, playing it on a hop rather than charging the ball," Sean Keeler reports from Des Moines, where Soriano is on a rehab stint. "In three at-bats, Soriano, who's recovering from a strained left quadriceps, saw just six pitches. That's right. Six. He swung at the second offering each time. Meek grounder to second. Pop-out to first. Fly out to left. Thanks for coming, everybody! Drive home safe!"

11. New Chicago Uno Grill prototype opening in Plattsburgh, New York.

12. Chicago Teen Gets $1M In Scholarships.

13. Sam Cooke To Get His Own Street.

14. Station Identification: WFLD/32/Fox Chicago.

15. A walk through Ravenswood Used Books.

16. Scorekeeping: A lost art comes back to life digitally.

17. Last Week in WTF.

Programming Note
I know there are a lot of hot topics I haven't gotten to yet, I'm still catching up since last week's laptop debacle. Flash mobs, Paige Wiser, Blago . . . and much more to come as best I can this week.

Also, seeing as how it's Monday, I'm back behind the bar tonight at the venerable Beachwood Inn. Stop in and say hello. 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
