The [Thursday] Papers

This is shaping up to be a very tough month for me in terms of time, energy and money for a variety of reasons so there's a lot I haven't gotten to and probably won't get to until January, including the mayoral campaign. And, of course, I have a lot to say about our president. All in due time. For now, though, isn't this kind of perfect?

And so far all health care reform and credit card reform have done is hurt us working folk. This guy is killing me.

I do take issue with CBS's claim that "economists largely agree [the tax deal] would help stimulate the economy."

Tax cuts are the least effective economic stimulant; spending is the most effective - particularly if that spending is on jobs and not, say, earmarks to the connected. But as Bob Somerby wrote the other day, we're all George W. Bush now. How different is the Obama administration from a third Bush term?

And as usual, Democrats have no one but themselves to blame.

This is who they are. They don't change.

After all, Joe Berrios is a Democrat. In fact, he's the head of the Cook County Democratic Party.

Michael Madigan is a Democrat. In fact, he's the head of the Illinois Democratic Party.

And Barack Obama is a Democrat. In fact, he's the president of the United States.

How they doin'?

Chiclets and Stripper Poles

Rahm Emanuel's Rose Garden Strategy
Well, after all, he's a Democrat.

*

Do I like Republicans? No. But I'm not sure anyone has any illusions about them.

Alternate Reality
Another way to approach this piece would be to call it "Chicago's Top 10 Places To Avoid At All Costs."

But that's just us.

Todd Stroger
Democrat.

Pat Quinn
Democrat.

Richard M. Daley
Democrat.

Human Cost
"Illinois' children, seniors, people with disabilities, and those who are homeless are suffering as Illinois' human service organizations cut essential programs, reduce hours and curtail levels of service in the face of Illinois' budget crisis," Illinois Partners for Human Service says.

Meanwhile, it's bonus time on Wall Street.

*

The Cubs not only just gave a .196 hitter $10 million, but Obama cut his taxes too!

Toilet Justice
"A 49-year-old Chicago man suspected of stealing a large roll of toilet paper from the restroom of a federal agency in Orland Park remains in the Cook County Jail morning in lieu of $50,000 bail," TribLocal Orland Park reports.

*

"Timothy Geithner says he regrets tax mistakes." Confirmed as Treasury Secretary. In a Democratic administration.

A Crown Affair
"Members of the Crown family of Chicago have purchased the 42-acre Moore parcel for $13 million," the Aspen Daily News reports.

"The property, located off Maroon Creek Road between the Aspen Recreation Center and the Moore Open Space, is one of the last remaining large parcels in the Aspen area with development potential."

*

Chicago's Anti-Eviction Campaign.

Cabrini's Green
Last Cabrini-Green residents moving out.
