The [Thursday] Papers

"You have the Riv, you have Aragon, you have Double Door," Rahm Emanuel told an unquestioning Thomas Conner of the Sun-Times Lin Brehmer and Mary Dixon of WXRT. "We have a downtown theater district. Should there be an Uptown music district, given our history with labels as well as the club scene, which is truly, truly unique around the country?"

Um, the Double Door isn't in Uptown. Not even close. It's in Wicker Park.


And if Conner Brehmer and Dixon had been on the ball, he they would have realized he they had the perfect opening to ask about his ties to Ticketmaster/Live Nation.

After all, who do you think might end up making out if a music district proposed by Rahm came to fruition?


NOTE: Apologies to Thomas Conner, I read the story too quickly and didn't realize he was quoting from an 'XRT interview.


And for a much better review of the proceedings, check out Jim DeRogatis's post.

The Problem With @MayorEmanuel
It obscured more truths than it revealed.


I wonder what Dan Sinker thinks about this. Perhaps Quaxelrod will let us know.


From the Tribune: "A secretly funded political group aligned with Rahm Emanuel has donated more than $445,000 to aldermanic candidates to help the mayor-elect in a high-stakes battle over control of City Hall.

"Emanuel publicly steered clear of all but a few City Council races on his way to an overwhelming victory last week. At the same time, the group led by his former campaign manager was showering money on aldermanic candidates whose support Emanuel needs to push his agenda."

So I guess when Rahm said a rubber-stamp city council was "unacceptable" meant that they shouldn't even get to have stamps anymore.

Northwestern gives new meaning to the phrase "after-school special."


If Northwestern students are so smart, why do they still need sex education?

Fox Block
"A Chicago man was ticketed for allegedly disconnecting extension cords for cameras and lights on a Fox News truck on the Capitol Square Tuesday," the Madison, Wisconsin, Capitol Times reports.

"Dan Edelstein, 23, was cited for disorderly conduct by Madison police after he allegedly yanked the cords from the outlets on the outside of the Fox News truck at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said."
