The [Thursday] Papers

"At least one car of a CTA Green Line train derailed Thursday morning, at the 47th Street 'L' station in the Bronzeville neighborhood," CBS2 Chicago reports.

"CTA spokesman Steve Mayberry said the southbound train derailed near 47th Street around 11:05 a.m.

"The Chicago Fire Department said seven people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The CTA, as of 1 p.m., said it may take up to six hours before service is fully restored. For now, passengers are being bused between Roosevelt Road to 55th Street."

Nature Sucks
"A plant that can cause second-degree burns is growing near the Chicago River bridge," WGN-TV reports.

Stay away from the wild parsnip, folks.

"A Vermont woman who received the equivalent of second-degree chemical burns to her legs after falling into a wild parsnip plant is warning others about the dangers of the seemingly harmless herbage," Fox News (I know) reported last year.

Click through and check out the graphic images, gross.

Chocolate Thunder
"A suburban Chicago cancer patient who ordered a 42-pound (19-kilogram) package of THC-infused chocolates from a California dispensary to self-medicate has been sentenced to four years in prison," AP reports.

"Thomas J. Franzen of Montgomery pleaded guilty in Kane County Circuit Court to possession of more than 5,000 grams (176 ounces) of cannabis, a felony that carried a prison term of from probation to 15 years."

Franzen has Stage 4 cancer, according to his lawyer.

63 Up: Real Reality TV
"More than just documenting the life course of 14 individuals, the program has offered a lens through which we have been able to see social and cultural change at work - from the micro-level of participants' careers, marriages, divorces, parenting and illnesses to broader social themes of employment, poverty and politics. Its blend of personal and political has been emulated in many shows since it began, but no other show has allowed us to see the way the two intersect throughout the duration of an individual's life."
