The [Monday] Papers

As I mentioned last week, things will be touch-and-go this week because I'm moving next weekend.

Hey, I just got "last week," "this week" and "next week(end)" into the same sentence!

I still have a lot to do to prepare for the move - mainly in terms of packing shit up - so the column may lag a bit. I have tons of crap to go through in an effort to pare down before the move as well; the new place is pretty well furnished without a whole lot of room for my stacks of papers and decades of reporting notebooks and general newsroom vibe, so there's still a lot of work ahead of me.

I'll still be in Logan Square, about six or eight blocks north. More on that later.
