The [Thursday] Papers

1. Rahm Denies Political Motives In Renaming Stony Island For Brazier.

Though he did say say something about never letting a street name go to waste.

2. World-Class City Combats Heat By Giving Students Toy Fans.

Meanwhile, kids at Lab School get Commando 8s.


Look, supplying students with handheld fans is ridiculous, but I don't think one kid getting her hair caught in the foam "blades" constitutes news - and particularly doesn't merit the top-of-home-page headline the Sun-Times has been giving it.

But I would like to know who got the fan contract.


Also: You can review CPS's new A/C units here.

3. Mayor: Sorry For Burge.

"Asked to clarify if he was indeed apologizing, the mayor added: 'Here's what I mean: I am sorry this happened. Let us all now move on.'"

In other words, Mayor: Sorry Burge Story Hasn't Gone Away.


Or has it? Rahm's apology overshadowed the fact that the city was signing off an another $12.3 million in settlement money - and there's more on the way.

4. Let Us All Now Move On.

"Some 1,600 fewer children in Illinois will be served in Head Start programs this school year due to the federal sequestration, according to the National Head Start Association," Progress Illinois reports.

If they only held classes at the airport, this would be bigger news.

5. Groupon Stock Hits 52-Week High.

Yeah, but that's on NASQUACK.

6. Chicago Aldermen Toting $1,400 Tablets At City Hall.

Yeah, but they're running Windows 8 so council meetings just got longer.

7. Mike's Hard Lemonade Moving To Chicago.

And you thought this was still a beer-and-a-shot town.

8. Riot Fest Rules.

Punkfork takes Humboldt Park.

9. The 1% President.

Since Obama took office, the top 1% have captured 95% of all income gains.

10. Ghost Peppers vs. An Assful of Adrian Peterson.

In The Blue & Orange Kool-Aid Report.
