The [Monday] Papers

1. SportsMonday: Bears Make A Statement.

They will not just stand idly by and let Minnesota take control of third place in the NFC North.

2. Exclusive Severe Weather Safety Tips.

Don't forget the Slim Jims.

3. The Beachwood Radio Hour: Accountability Uber Alles.

Look in the mirror, newsies. Plus: Jane Byrne Sucked; Illini, Bears Need Tougher Beers; CPS Office of Accountability Is Super Ironic; Meet The New Swaps, Same As The Old Swaps.

4. Redflex: North America Is Low/No-Growth Market.

5. At The United Nations, Chicago Activists Protest Police Brutality.

6. Chicago Activist Asks For Bond, Release From Jail.

"Allies of a Chicago activist convicted of illegally getting U.S. citizenship are willing to put their homes up as collateral to get her out of jail while she awaits her sentence" AP reports.

"Rasmieh Odeh is asking a Detroit judge to reconsider a decision that is keeping her locked up in a county jail until her next hearing in March. Prosecutors have until Wednesday to respond.

"Odeh, 67, runs daily operations at the Arab American Action Network in Chicago, which provides services to immigrants. She was convicted last week of failing to disclose her convictions for bombings in Israel in 1969 when she applied for citizenship in Detroit in 2004."

7. The College Football Report Top Ten will return next week. The College Football Report will appear, as usual, on Friday.

8. The Weekend In Chicago Rock will appear Tuesday.

9. This Bruce Isn't The Boss.

My latest Op-Ed for Crain's.

10. Someone's put a muzzle on Marc Trestman. Last year he was awesome in press conferences, explaining his game decisions impressively and persuasively in a refreshingly open style. This year he's been far more circumspect and, today, he reached a new low with a weird, post-victory press conference in which he basically refused to answer any questions. Maybe he's palling around with this guy:

-

With All Due Respect . . .

JAMES A. DeVINNEY: First, I'd like you to tell me early expectations of Jane Byrne.

SLIM COLEMAN: Well I think, ah, we, we had some high expectations. I think that's true especially right after she won the primary. Ah, it was an easy race for the general election against the Republican candidate so she was already assumed to be the mayor. We were real excited. We thought we had beat the machine. Ah, we didn't really know Jane Byrne. Ah, some of us had only talked to her five or ten minutes but we voted for her because she said she was out fighting the machine. Ah, we picked up the newspaper, ah, two days after the primary and found that she was, ah, had gone to, ah, vacation in Miami with a group of developers, ah, who were some of the main financial people for the, ah, ah, machine and then, ah, ah, a week later, ah, she announced that she had made peace with, ah, the evil cabal that she'd campaigned against.

JAMES A. DeVINNEY: Tell me about change, then. When did you start to see Jane Byrne as something other than the ideal?

SLIM COLEMAN: Well, like I say, it began to grow from the second day after she won the primary, we began to get indications, ah. I think that, ah, the housing question was one of the first ones that really broke open. Ah, that she was, ah, interested in doing downtown development deals and not and really turned her back on neighborhood housing programs that people were trying to get going, ah.
