The [Thursday] Papers

"The young Obama played the reformer, yes, but that was only a show for an adoring media," John Kass writes this morning. "Obama would never dare challenge the alphas of Illinois. I remember being in the editorial board room at the Tribune Tower when Obama revealed this important and always overlooked aspect of his character.

"'I think I have done a good job in rising politically in this environment without being entangled in some of the traditional problems of Chicago politics,' Obama told me at the onset of his presidential campaign.

"'I know there are those like John Kass who would like me to decry Chicago politics more frequently, and I'll leave that to his editorial commentary,' Obama said, gifting me with that jewel.

"Thanks, Mr. President. My commentary?

"Obama walked quietly along the Chicago Way and became president.

"And Blagojevich didn't, and now he's gone."

*

The same Democrats always demanding every Republican decry every stupid thing Rush Limbaugh says never even requested that Obama decry Chicago's corrupt political culture and the gruesome creatures it produces. How could he? Those are his friends.

Tweeting Blago
My favorite was my first:

Blago to stand on sidewalk outside home at 5 p.m. today holding a boom box over his head that's playing all the tapes.

You can read the rest @BeachwoodReport.

Is Blago Psycho?
The research is in!

We also commissioned a team of sketch artists to draw up what Blago will look like when he's finally released back into the general population. Here's what they came up with.

"A group of scientists led by researchers from the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University have for the first time sent a message using a beam of neutrinos - nearly massless particles that travel at almost the speed of light. The message was sent through 240 meters of stone and said simply, 'Neutrino,'" the University of Rochester reports.

"'Using neutrinos, it would be possible to communicate between any two points on Earth without using satellites or cables,' said Dan Stancil, professor of electrical and computer engineering at NC State and lead author of a paper describing the research. 'Neutrino communication systems would be much more complicated than today's systems, but may have important strategic uses."

So instead of Twitter we would Neuter.

Hey, they can't all be gold.

The test was done at our very own Fermilab.

Waste Not, Want Not
"With millions of starving people all over the world, it may be hard to believe how much food goes to waste each and every day," Scripps Howard reports. "New numbers out show that 30 to 50 percent of food produced in the world goes uneaten and ends up in landfills.

"Experts at the Reuters Food and Agriculture Summit in Chicago this week unveiled their findings about how much food goes to waste all over the world. For example, the average American throws out about 33 pounds of food each month, or about $40, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council. That equals to about 400 pounds of food per year.

"Estimates from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency say about 33 million tons of food ends up in landfills and incinerators."
