The [Monday] Papers

I'm still under the gun - can we even use those metaphors anymore around here? - on a freelance project and there's a lot to catch up on, like all of last week. I'll do the best I can moving forward. For today, let's peruse the news in no particular order and see what kind of folly silly humans are up to now.

1. Police Find $10 Million Worth Of Cocaine In McKinley Park Home.

"[Defense lawyer] Joseph Lopez . . . said his client was caught in the middle of a drug deal he had nothing to do with."

Well, he had something to do with it. Like being in the middle.

2. Jim McMahon's Sucky Super Bowl Week.

"It should have been the crowning career moment for former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon when he helped his team win the Super Bowl," CBS2 Chicago reports.

Super Bowl week wasn't a good time for me. I was getting death threats. We had bomb threats at the hotel. Guys wouldn't stand by me at practice. They thought for sure I was going to get shot at practice. I don't remember much of the game. I just wanted to play, and get back in that locker room, so I couldn't get shot.

3. SportsMonday: Bears' Road To The Super Bowl.

4. It's Not Rough Everywhere.

"An 18-room lakefront mansion in Winnetka has sold for $12.25 million, making it one of the single highest-priced residential sales in Chicago-area history," the Tribune reports.

5. Boeing's Bust.

"The Dreamliner was supposed to become famous for its revolutionary design," James Surowiecki writes for the New Yorker.

"Instead, it's become an object lesson in how not to build an airplane."

6. AP: Almost Passable.

7. The Weekend in Chicago Rock.

8. QT: Spider Monkey America.

9. Beers Rahm Does Not Like.

10. Sigh.
