The [Thursday] Papers

"People in Calumet Heights may now have to go somewhere else to find bootlegged DVDs," DNAinfo Chicago reports.

"Arthur Roy, 47, of the 8800 block of South Constance Avenue, was held on $60,000 bond Wednesday after police allegedly found about 10,000 bootlegged DVDs at his home."

It was the fake popcorn where he really made his money, though.

Not A Tea Party In Sight
"A state official said Illinois doesn't have enough money to fund a much-needed drop-in-center for West Side residents," Austin Talks reports.

"Richard Calica, director of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, told advocates and others who attended a meeting last month organized by Rep. La Shawn Ford (D-Chicago) that his agency lost $70 million of funding to community programs and another $29 million was cut from DCFS staff."

Illinois doesn't need the federal government to sequester itself, thank you very much.

Joliet Juke
"The parent of First Community Bank of Joliet has redeemed nearly $10 million of what formerly were federal bailout shares at a discount that will result in a one-time gain of nearly $3 million," Crain's reports.

The deal was arranged through Groupon Goods.

Cook Book
"Cook County's population grew by 17,000 people in 2012," the Sun-Times reports.

Reversing a trend of new dead voters outnumbering new live ones.

Screw Loose
Speaker Madigan On SEC Fraud Allegations Vs. State: "There are no victims here."

We will not be ignored, Mike.

Loose Screw
"The primary lender on the failed Chicago Spire development has hired a broker to sell nearly $93 million of debt on the high-profile site, a step to revive activity where a deep hole along Lake Shore Drive and the Chicago River has sat untouched for five years," Crain's reports.

Such as digging the hole deeper?

Hearing Voices
"What I'm hearing on my Listening Tour is that people are fed up with corrupt career politicians," GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner says in his latest news release.

I've got news for you, Bruce: I could have saved you the time, expense and drudgery of traveling the state to find that out by taking you on a Listening Tour of my favorite bars.


"People believe it's going to take an outsider, someone from the private sector to shake things up."

True. But a lot of people's idea of an outsider isn't an insider.
