The [Monday] Papers

The Papers will return on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, our very own Jim Coffman joins the chorus of those blasting Marc Trestman for attempting a field goal on second down in overtime in Sunday's game against the Vikings instead of taking one more play to try to move the ball closer than 47 yards for Robbie Gould.

I wholeheartedly disagree, and I hope I have the time to explain why tomorrow.

Also, in The Weekend In Chicago Rock: Zombi, Savage Sister, George Clinton & P-Funk, Elton John, and Broken Hope.

I'll freshen up the rest of the site when I'm back in business tomorrow.

The [Thanksgiving 2013] Papers:

1. Speed Camera System Flags A Parked Car.

That's okay, just write the check to the City of Chicago Children's Fund.

2. Thanksgiving Has Long Been a Commercial Sell-Out.

From day one.

"As soon as I arrived in the Indies, on the first Island which I found, I took some of the natives by force in order that they might learn and might give me information of whatever there is in these parts." The information that Columbus wanted most was: Where is the gold?

It's the historical sellout we still haven't come to grips with.
