The [Monday] Papers
1. "The small Door County community of Egg Harbor holds the most liquor licenses per capita than any other place in Wisconsin, an analysis shows."
No wonder Egg Harbor was named The Best Small Town In Wisconsin and One Of The Coolest Small Towns In America.
6. Jim DeRogatis's Biggest Turkeys of 2011.
8. "Paramedics may be liable for forcibly hospitalizing a man who refused medical attention, a federal judge ruled, recounting an undisputed record showing emergency responders put their patient in a headlock, rammed his head 20 times into an ambulance wall and taped him up 'like a mummy,'" Courthouse News Service reports.
"Howard Travis had just undergone neck surgery at a hospital in June 2008, when he went to a grocery store on the South Side of Chicago. Feeling faint and sweating profusely, Travis sat on a store display and attracted the attention of a store manager who called 911.
"Nevertheless, the paramedics picked him up by his arms and legs and forced him into the ambulance. Many of the facts of the case are undisputed, according to the court."
9. "That's not a UFO on the roof of the Art Institute of Chicago," Co. Design reports. "Lunar, a solar-powered, spacecraft-looking sculpture by artist Spencer Finch, is shaped like a 'buckyball' - named for the geodesic dome invented by the architect Buckminster Fuller - and glows with the light of a full moon over Chicago.
"Finch measured the amount of moonlight in the city during the summer using a colorimeter, a device that measures the average color and temperature of light in a specific place and time. The luminosity is reconstructed using LED lights that have a bluer quality and filtered through the orange polycarbonate of the buckyball. The aluminum structure contains solar panels that collect sunlight during the day that it converts to moonlight over the darkened autumn and winter months."
10. "A coalition of preservationists are rallying around the former Brand Brewery complex, hoping to stave off a proposed demolition of the ensemble of Logan Square industrial buildings," Lee Bey reports.
11. "Notorious gangster Al Capone is known as the most infamous criminals of the 1920s, but his closest living relative says he didn't deserve being sent to Alcatraz, the harshest prison in the country with the most despicable criminals.
"'He was the King of Chicago,' Al's great-grand niece, Deirdre Marie Capone told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview."
Harrumph. That's nothing.
16. Chicagoetry: Holiday.
