The [Thursday] Papers

I'm trying to put together a new podcast on the Laquan McDonald e-mails, so there won't be a proper column today.

* Obama's Gun Moves Unlikely To Affect Gang Violence.

Cook County study sheds doubt on impact.

Note: The guy gives a pretty (but not new) speech, sheds a tear, and the internet memes fly with how the dude, in the words of one post I saw, "has been earning his Nobel Peace Prize for seven years." Please. Look at the content and policy, and you'll see it's pretty damn empty. As ProPublica asks, "Will simply explaining current law more clearly help save lives?" Beyond that, the measures the president is taking have little to do with the nature of gang violence in places like Chicago. Do your homework, people.

* Amy Schumer's New Chicago Boyfriend Made The Papers Here When He Was 17.

Furniture maker was a Palatine snowboard phenom.

Note: This post may seem like a departure for the Beachwood, but I was just curious and thought I'd share my findings. Also interesting: They met on a dating app. Supposition: Explains why Schumer has spent so much time here lately; she did a Christmas Eve show at the Constellation, for example.
