The [Monday] Papers

I'm not as quick to acquit Jay Cutler for his role in Sunday's debacle as our very own Jim "Coach" Coffman and many of his sports media brethren, but you have to wonder why the Bears had absolutely no answer for at least mitigating Aaron Rodgers.

Coffman has more in SportsMonday: The Rivalry Is Dead.

Coffman also talked Bears on WBEZ this morning; we'll bring you the audio on Tuesday as it isn't available yet.

*

Bears kicker Robbie Gould just said on The Score that their onside kick attempt near the end of the first half was a great call because the Packers weren't expecting it. But if you read SportsMonday, you'll learn that that isn't true - the Packers saw it coming.

* Unemployment Isn't A Bug, It's A Feature.

Sadly, this is exactly how Federal Reserve policy-making works. The Fed will raise interest rates - squeezing the amount of money available to companies - when the unemployment rate starts to trend "too low." It does this ostensibly because it fears inflation, which happens to lessen the value of assets that rich people (who don't really make their money on wages) hold. Even worse, the rock-solid relationship between inflation and unemployment isn't even rock-solid upon inspection (look up NAIRU). Of course, these days corporations are sitting on unprecedented amounts of cash which they are hoarding instead of investing. Meanwhile, lives are destroyed.

* Fact-Checking Conservative, Latently Racist 'Black-on-Black' Crime 'Outrage' And Concern Trolling.

* Alderman Believes Online Poll Is Valuable Policy-Making Tool.

Get it together, Tunney.

* Say 'No' To The Iliana Expressway (Again).

I want to believe in the Iliana, but the policy geeks are in consensus and make a persuasive case.
