The [Thursday] Papers

For completists, there was no column on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, we've scheduled the 200th episode of The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour for this Saturday at 10:30 a.m., followed by a beery liquid lunch across the street at Revolution Brewing. Guests welcome! If you want to be on the air or just part of the studio audience, let me know.
