The [Thursday] Papers
"A B-52 bomber was mistakenly armed with six nuclear warheads and flown for more than three hours across several states last week, prompting the firing of one commander, Pentagon officials said Wednesday," the Sun-Times notes in a brief on page 27.

The judge sent them back this.
The rest sold you out.

Andolino worked in IGA then."
* "Andolino is the latest in a clique of former Victor Reyes proteges to be rewarded with powerful City Hall posts."
