The [Monday] Papers

Last week's conditions will still apply this week - on a very tight deadline for a fairly intensive freelance assignment. Posting will be sporadic, but I will try - and I will try to do better than I did Thursday and Friday when I didn't get much of anything up on the site.

Today, we have some sports offerings to start you off:

* Jim Casey, Cubs Roadie. A retired Greyhound bus driver who didn't mind logging long hours following his beloved minor league Cubs teams through the sticks to watch the kids he hoped would one day deliver the big team a World Series win is drawing his last breaths, even as the organization that never seemed to love their young 'uns as much as he did finally starts to build from the ground up. In The Cub Factor.

* It's Tackle And It's Real: Chicago's Female Football Team That Doesn't Wear Lingerie While Playing Is Undefeated And Advancing To Its Super Bowl.

* How bad was that weekend of baseball? In SportsMonday.

* The White Sox Report will be posted later this morning is up and now we know who's to blame.

The Weekend Desk Report
The Weekend Desk doesn't take 2 1/2 months to not skate away from our problems.

Market Update
It seems not every initial public offering is warmly received.

Fighting Flight
A group of researchers has used the Xbox Kinect to study a cannibalistic swarm of locusts. And by "study a cannibalistic swarm of locusts," we mean play Skyrim.

Walled Mart
Speaking of cannibalistic swarms, it seems Walmart's controversial competitive practices have become so aggressive it's now putting itself out of business.

Permanent Vacation
You know who else is enjoying his time away from politics? Humanity.

Choice Cuts
Maybe we should let Gar Forman and Rodney Erickson switch places for the next 72 hours. It'd make Mark Emmert's life easier, since the Bulls got the death penalty for next season a while ago.

Open Bar
Finally this week, proof that beer really does make life better.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Locusty.
