The [Tuesday] Papers

"Four vehicles, each filled with garbage, sit outside a home in a quiet Schaumburg neighborhood, where a mentally ill man has been living in his front yard since it was padlocked by a mortgage company," the Tribune reports. "As angry as his neighbors have become, they have hesitated to sign complaints that would get John Wuerffel arrested."

One of the more poignant signs of the times.

Spin City
So let me get this straight: City Colleges is not considering abolishing its open admissions policy, it's just considering abolishing its open admissions policy. Try again, Trib.

Parks and Rec
"A 25-year veteran Chicago Park District supervisor has been fired from his $56,500-a-year job for allegedly permitting a nude male dancer to perform at a private party at a South Side park," the Sun-Times reports.

"Larry Baldwin, supervisor of recreation for Wentworth Gardens Park, 3770 S. Wentworth, said he was terminated Friday after being confronted with pictures of the male stripper taken by a Chicago Park District underling who left work early to attend the Jan. 8 dinner dance."

Here's my favorite part:

"Baldwin, 55, insisted that he had no advance warning about the nude dancer and had his hands full that night breaking up a dice game in the men's washroom."

I Couldn't Agree More
"I've said this before, but it's worth repeating: Almost everyone close to Blagojevich in his administration has gone to prison or will in the near future," Phil Kadner writes in a must-read column for the SouthtownStar.

"The former governor is a crook.

"Fitzgerald is not.

"If you can't choose the right side in this fight, you deserve the government you get."

O'Hare 57
"A UFO sighting from 2007 has been re-ignited to top news today," the Weekly World News reports. The sighting took place at Chicago's O'Hare Airport and has been mired in controversy - as is the case with any UFO sighting."


"An unedited pre-interview discussion of the sighting from 2007 has surfaced. The conversation is between Jon Hilkevitch (the Chicago Tribune transportation reporter who reported the Chicago UFO story) and Jim Wagner, a news anchor with CLTV, a 24 hour news channel in Oak Brook, Illinois."

Well, it didn't just surface, but here it is:
