The [Thursday] Papers

"I think that our new mayor has a chance to take a fresh, new look at this case," Flint Taylor tells John Kass. "I don't suppose he would continue to defend the indefensible."

*

"But Daley did," Kass writes, "and stonewalled and blustered and sneered and mocked anyone who questioned him. There was even a ridiculous whitewash report by pro-Daley judges to protect him. Taylor can't wait to have at him."

*

"If the city wants to continue to fight this, so be it," Taylor said. "The former mayor will be facing up to eight hours, and I don't think he can have the fog machine going all that time."

*

Please don't settle this case before Daley is deposed. The city deserves answers.

It's About Freakin' Time
"Gov. Pat Quinn flexed his veto power Wednesday by rewriting legislation in a way that would end the long practice of letting Illinois legislators hand out scholarships to state universities," AP reports.

"A 2009 Associated Press analysis of the scholarships and state political contribution records found that, between 2004 and 2009, at least 41 scholarships went to relatives of people who gave money to the lawmakers awarding the waivers and at least 42 more went to relatives of other politically connected people, such as donors to other politicians, lobbyists, party officials and others."

And Then Quinn Did This
Because he is the state's foremost expert on our community colleges.

Wizard World
I'm not a comic book guy or sci-fi nerd or a geek, really, but the lineup and attractions at the Chicago Comic Con are actually quite impressive. And if you click through, you'll see proof that a girl will be there.

Bad Taste
"Berklee College of Music and Lollapalooza announced the founding of the Berklee Lollapalooza Endowed Scholarship at the 20th Anniversary of Lollapalooza in Chicago," the Music Industry News Network reports. "The four-year, full tuition scholarship will be awarded annually to a talented musician in financial need and is being endowed by Goldman Sachs Gives, a donor-advised fund."

Wow. For something that is ostensibly right, this sounds so wrong on so many levels.

Meter Meltdown
"A Tampa business has been raided by the FBI in a multi-state corruption investigation," WTSP reports.

"The president of Cale Parking Systems - a company that runs electronic parking meters for cities like Cincinnati, Baltimore, and Chicago - is under investigation for giving kickbacks for contracts in the Portland, Oregon area."

The Country Club Hills Way
"Country Club Hills aldermen recently lambasted Mayor Dwight Welch for his excessive spending habits and then took away his city credit card," the SouthtownStar reports.

"But over the past two years, many of those same aldermen have spent more than $126,000 of taxpayer money on dinners, hefty cell phone bills, a gym membership, cash gifts for friends and family, and charities with which they are affiliated, according to a SouthtownStar analysis of city and financial records."
