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."

"'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."

Hey, they can't all be gold.
The test was done at our very own Fermilab.

"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."
