The [Thursday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes

Totally swamped; an abbreviated column today.

* It seems Ms. Britney Rowley was working with Michael Jackson when he deposited some funds in an account no one else knows about.

* Hey, if you're going to be covering President Obama's vacation at Martha's Vineyard, you might want to ask him about the wind there.

* Tough times, duct tape, wicked people. A prism through which to view today's America.

* "If we do our jobs as servers, at a good speed, we will make our money and our customers will leave knowing that if they had a shitty time it wasn't because their server was an ass. They're on their own with their ugly children and unhappy spouses."

* Property Owners Beware. Joe Berrios wants to get his hands on your tax bill.

* U of I Clout List Killed. President B. Joseph White in survival mode.

* Stimulus Sign Language.

* "A memo obtained by the Huffington Post confirms that the White House and the pharmaceutical lobby secretly agreed to precisely the sort of wide-ranging deal that both parties have been denying over the past week."

* "If ever we needed proof that the Obama administration really doesn't want to change the way Wall Street does business, this is it."

* "Stimulus Transparency Watchdog Won't Release Federal Contract Details."

* "Chicago's first-ever Green Music Fest is slated to hit the city's airwaves this summer in Eckhart Park in the north side neighborhood of West Town on August 15 and 16."

* "Who says click-through rates on Facebook suck?"

* The real Ferris Bueller is now a Washington, D.C., lawyer. (h/t: ABA Journal)

Twenty states still allow school beatings. Locations coincide with SEC conference.

* MoveOn coordinates mobs of its own in letter-writing campaign:

We can't let right-wing extremists ruin the biggest opportunity in a generation to get real reform. Can you send a quick letter to the editor of The Chicago Sun-Times - or another local paper - about the urgent need in Illinois for Congress to pass health care reform with a real public option?

Click here.

Our tool makes writing a letter really simple. You can send the letter right from our website - it only takes a few minutes.

If you've never written a letter to the editor before, now is the time to send your first. The letters page is one of the most widely read - and most important - in local newspapers.

MoveOn then goes on to provide talking points "as part of our 'Real Voices for Change' campaign."
