There are few universal conclusions about the effects of divorce versus unhappy marriages; instead, there are individuals, their specific problems and how they handle them.

The [Thursday] Papers

"A 15-year-old boy with nearly 20 arrests on his record has been charged with armed robbery after he held up a man near his home, police said," the Tribune reports.

"It was Jesus Castaneda's 19th arrest, according to police, and his second gun-related charge. He was last arrested in August 2012 for unlawful use of a weapon, police said."

Profile, please.

I know he's a juvenile and I know it would be a challenge, but isn't his story exactly the kind we need to tell? I see journalism ahead.

I mean, it's not like we just had a presidential campaign.

By the way, the man in the video is Cenk Uygur, who was hired by MSNBC on the strength of his work here on his Young Turks show, but then replaced by Al Sharpton right before the presidential campaign because Sharpton promised to support the president while Uygur promised to do his job as a journalist.

But let's keep talking about how stupid Fox News viewers are.

And now Obama wants to make Bush torture enabler John Brennan his head of the CIA. On the other hand, Brennan has already been serving as Obama's chief counterterrorism advisor so what's the diff?

Romney's first term vs. Bush's fourth term. Discuss.

Schock Value
"Freshman U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville, did not cooperate with the Office of Congressional Ethics in its initial probe of alleged campaign finance violations by U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Peoria," the Springfield Journal-Register reports.

The no-snitching code strikes again.

*

"'The OCE infers that the information Mr. Davis refused to provide, taken together with the factual findings in this referral, supports the conclusion that there is substantial reason to believe that the alleged violation occurred,' the OCE said in a report made public Wednesday.

"The report recommends that Davis and three other non-cooperating witnesses be subpoenaed.

"The investigation, now before the House Ethics Committee, deals with allegations that Schock solicited donations of more than $5,000 per donor for a super political action committee. The OCE report says Davis, then an aide to U.S. Rep. John Shimkus, R-Collinsville, was identified by the super PAC's managing director as the contact person for five potential donors before the 2012 primary election."

Oh Cicero
"A rival of Cicero Town President Larry Dominick on Wednesday called for a federal investigation into town spending at a Berwyn hardware store," the Sun-Times reports.

"Juan Ochoa's call came a day after the Sun-Times reported that the Town of Cicero has spent more than $3 million at Lembke & Sons True Value, a store that has contributed more than $50,000 to Dominick's campaign fund since he took office in 2005."

That's a lot of hardware. Click through for the rest of the story.
