The [Monday] Papers

"Jenny McCarthy will officially be joining The View as co-host, Barbara Walters confirmed Monday on the ABC talk show," the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Though she launched her own little-watched talk show on VH1 earlier this year, McCarthy has remained in the spotlight in recent years mostly due to her support for the discredited theory that childhood vaccines cause autism."

And let's not forget about the Daily Jenny. I'm dying to know how things worked out for Jordan.

Burke Bank Skank
"A Northwest Side bank whose owners have long ties to City Hall is suing Ald. Edward M. Burke's son and daughter-in-law for more than $600,000 over a failed development on the Southwest Side," the Sun-Times reports.

"Belmont Bank's owners include zoning attorney James Banks, a nephew of retired Ald. William Banks; trucking magnate Fred B. Barbara, a friend of former Mayor Richard M. Daley who got rich hauling the city's garbage, and former state Sen. James DeLeo.

"The bank says Edward M. Burke Jr., an assistant chief deputy to Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, and his wife Jacqueline Burke, who works for the clout-heavy United Neighborhood Organization, are on the hook for a loan they and two other couples got from the bank four years ago to redevelop the shuttered Froedtert Malt factory in the 2100 block of West 51st Place."


Reminder: "UNO already operates five publicly funded charter schools in Burke's ward. But his ties to the group go beyond that. Burke's daughter-in-law, Jacqueline Burke, has worked for UNO since 2009, according to UNO payroll records."

Just to show the tangled strands beneath the sauce.
