The [Thursday] Papers

The Papers will be sporadic this week as I'm on a freelance deadline that is sucking my brain apart and redistributing it to all corners of the universe, but we'll still have plenty of good material throughout the site. Here's today's:

* The Top Candidates To Replace Jesse Jackson Jr. - Plus A Lawyer Named Ernest B. Fenton - Held A Debate.

I'll say this: They're not Junior!

* The Political Odds.

Revised and extended to reflect the debate.

* Obama's Flip-Flops On Money In Politics: A Brief History.

Hypocrite-in-chief strikes again.

* Local Music Notebook: Chief Keef, Pet Lions & The Chicago Shuffle.

Plus: Yo La Tengo And George Young.

* Latest Chicago Tonight Survey Strangely Focused On Science.

Again.

* Comment From Mary T. Burke:

Thank you to Ed Hammer and Russ Sonneveld. Anyone who is uneducated about the kind of person George Ryan really is should read 100% Guilty. The depth and breadth of the corruption is eye-opening. Whenever I hear people dismiss political corruption, I tell them political corruption costs lives. The book is filled with sleaze-filled examples of what George Ryan and his pals did to the state. It was interesting to see Jim Thompson trying to get in the picture next to George. They both deserve to go directly to hell.
