The [Thursday] Papers

"The American Civil Liberties Union in Chicago is suing the state of Illinois over conditions inside youth prisons," WBEZ reports.

"In its lawsuit the ACLU says some of the kids locked up aren't getting enough time in the classroom, and for the time they are there, they're not getting high quality instruction."

By that standard they should sue CPS too.


"One of the principal causes of the inadequate conditions at the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice is insufficient staffing and resources," says the ACLU's Adam Schwartz.


Our society sure doesn't like children much.

"Restoration of Grant Park following Lollapalooza has been completed at a cost of $350,000 picked up by the company that runs the summer music festival," the Tribune reports.

"The promoters of the fest, Texas-based C3 Presents, originally had said the renovations should cost about $150,000. But the final price tag was still far less than last year's $1 million bill for damage to the park following the festival."

I'll believe it when Jim DeRogatis sees it.

Home Base
"Illinois posted the highest foreclosure rate in the nation in August, with one of every 298 homes receiving a foreclosure notice, according to a report issued Thursday," the Tribune reports.

I wonder how many of those homes have children in the Chicago public school system.
