The [Monday] Papers

Made In Chicago: Prick Blades.

-

Trump TV Takes Over Tribune Media
"A Sinclair journalist relayed to me during campaign they were told by corporate what questions to ask Trump."

Study: Top Colleges Denying Qualified Low-Income Students
"[E]nrollment in the best schools is often more likely to be based on family income [than merit]."

How African Americans Disappeared From The Kentucky Derby
"A Chicago sportswriter grumbled that when he went to the track and saw black fans cheering black riders, he was uncomfortably reminded that black men could vote."

Programming Note: There is some weirdness on our sports section right now; the left rail is occasionally collapsing and the whole page shifting left. We're working on it. Posts are still readable and it's not happening every time!

TrackNotes: Always Dreaming Cranks Derby
"Any horseplayer will tell you finding the horse is only one thing. Crafting the bet is the Louvre."

TrackNotes: No Gambling!
"These days, baseball games are taken out of the hands of the best pitchers and players, making handicapping impossible. Football is an inhuman, militaristic industry and not a game or a sport, civilian casualties be damned. And basketball is too painful to watch even with a wager down. But we do have Thoroughbred horse racing."

The White Sox Report: Rebuilding & Racists
"The nights will be cold. The crowds will be sparse. Spending $9.75 for a Modelo Especial is excessive. The drama won't come from the fans. No, it will be all about whether this ballclub can maintain respectability as the rebuild continues. Just the way it should be."

SportsMonday: Return To Wrigley
"The tanking years drove me away and I've never regained my drive to attend games in person and give my money to the billionaire, conservative owners."

The Weekend In Chicago Rock
