The [Monday] Papers

"Chicago's beleaguered former red-light camera vendor, still reeling from a $2 million bribery scandal that nearly brought down the business and rippled across the globe, has agreed to pay $20 million to the city to settle its lawsuit over the company's admitted fraud," the Tribune's David Kidwell reports.

"In a 12-page settlement agreement, Redflex Traffic Systems Inc. agreed to pay the city in mostly annual installments through 2023. The first installment of $5 million is due within 45 days, according to the agreement."

I don't mind saying once again that Kidwell's red-light reporting has been absolutely remarkable. In fact, I rejoice in saying it! Inspiring and important. Journalism!
