The [Thursday] Papers

I spilled High Life on my keyboard last night.

Rescue and recovery operations are underway.

I've regained access to e-mail, social media and the site.

Obviously I'm typing this on someone else's computer.

All I can do now is pray. To the gods of High Life.

Please do not take my laptop away.

The IOC's Extraordinary Gag Order
In the U.S., protected trademarks include the Olympic rings, torch designs, the words "Olympic," "Paralympic" and "Pan American" as well as any other word or symbol that suggests an association with the USOC, the American team or the Olympic Games themselves. A recent search of the United States Trademark Electronic Search System reveals more than 200 trademarks, including "Olympian," "future Olympian," "road to Rio," "rumble in Rio," "train like an Olympian," "let the Games begin" and "go for the gold."

The Police Chief Who Got Away
John Timoney simply told his officers to stop shooting so many people. They did.

More from the Journalists Don't Understand How Their Own Business Works file:

I mean, is the inference that someone should have bought $350,000 of ads - or paid $350,000 in subscription fees? Preposterous. Revenue-generating content (and other income streams) pays for non-revenue generating content - kind of like how college sports works (the football program subsidizes the golf program.) And there's nothing wrong with that.

In some sectors of the economy, they would call investigative reporting a "loss leader." It's like a marketing investment that helps build a brand and generates unidentifiable revenue in the long-term through brand-building and customer relationships, but produces a deficit up front.

(And Mother Jones still has options - is there a movie to be had?)

I'm sure the Tribune's excellent and continuing investigation into the city's red-light program hasn't turned a profit, but that's not the point. That's one reason why it's journalism, and not merely a consumer product.
