The [Thursday] Papers

1. CIA Officers Working With Libya Rebels.

Why does this strike me as good news for Khadafy?


See also: Farrakhan, Khadafy and Obama.

2. Middle-Class Not Wanted.

3. Middle-Class Urine Not Wanted.

4. Isn't revealed carry preferable to concealed carry?

After all, don't we want to know who's packing?

I mean, we basically have concealed carry right now.

5. "Boeing Co. received at least $5.3 billion in illegal U.S. subsidies that gave it an unfair advantage over rival Airbus SAS, World Trade Organization judges ruled, backing a European Union complaint," Bloomberg reports.

"Judges in Geneva today confirmed previously confidential findings that the U.S. provided aid to Chicago-based Boeing through federal research grants and state support in developing aircraft including the 787 Dreamliner."

6. "It appears evident that the spot cheese buying on Monday was inspired by a psychological desire to 'not miss the boat' on another move to $1.90 or $2.00 courtesy of last week's spot activity," FCStowne/Downes-O'Neill writes for the Dairy Herd Network.

"Since then, the market has told us that the current fundamentals do not support that kind of rally on cheese at present. While we don't think buyers will back down entirely, we expect more cheese to come to the exchange to keep a lid on cheese prices today."

7. Chicago strangely missing from ballpark hot dog sales.

Suggestion: The Loser Dog at Wrigley (half the size, twice the price) and The Hawk Dog (made entirely of corn) on the South Side.

8. "Chicago is the nation's third-largest market when it comes to local online advertising, and the Tribune Co.'s Web outlets dominate, but sports giant ESPN is muscling in and stealing some of the Trib's home court advantage with its own local play," NetNewsCheck reports.


My favorite part, which kind of says it all about our local papers:

"The Tribune declined to comment for this story, and the Sun-Times couldn't be reached for comment."

9. Derrick Rose's Poor Shooting Has Been Saved By Free Throws.

10. The Second Life of Chicago's Fallen Birds.

11. We're still accepting submissions for There Are At Least 50 Things Wrong With This Morning Show Visit By Benny The Bull.

12. "Frank C. Calabrese, the dominant horse owner at Arlington Park for the past decade, has decided not to run at Arlington this summer, opting instead to run his string of 60 horses at Calder Racecourse in Florida," the Daily Herald reports.

Calabrese told the Daily Racing Form three days ago that "I just can't make any money in Chicago the way the purses are structured now,"
