The [Thursday] Papers

For completists, there was no Wednesday column.

1. Tom Skilling Lives In Edgewater.

"The fascinating thing about living in Edgewater is you get to see the whole range of weather here as nowhere else," he says.

2. Is This Ohio Company Poisoning Chicago's Far Southeast Side?

"In Chicago, nearly 20,000 people live within a 1-mile radius of S.H. Bell's South Avenue O Terminal, which, according to the company's website, is its second largest warehousing facility. Nearly two-thirds of those people are living below the poverty level, and almost 90 percent are minorities, according to the EPA. Of those living within 1 mile of the facility, more than 6,000 are children."

3. Day Without Immigrants - Chicago.
