The [Tuesday] Papers

"St. Louis music fans celebrated 'Jeff Tweedy Day' on Sunday, Aug. 29, when Mayor Francis G. Slay officially honored the Wilco frontman in conjunction with his solo performance at the city's Loufest. Slay made the announcement just hours before a 90-minute concert by Tweedy, a native of nearby Belleville, Ill.," Spinner reports.

"Tweedy joked to the crowd that the proclamation was 'the stupidest thing I've ever heard,' according to a report by the Riverfront Times.

Stink Eye
"Driving into Chicago always makes me evil," Peter Michael Miller writes in his We Are The Willows tour diary> "I get really uptight and curse at people that I most likely wouldn't curse at normally. I played at a joint called Quenchers SALOON and it felt a lot like a Minneapolis bar."

Retry Robert!
Why? Because he's guilty.

Hail Manny!
Why? Because he makes the White Sox better.

*

Yes, I hate the White Sox. I don't want them to be better. Just sayin'.

Transformer
Miley Cyrus is scheduled to be here tomorrow on a film shoot.

Oh my God, shut down the streets!

Cheli Whack
"Veteran defenseman Chris Chelios has officially called it a career and will move into a front office role with the Detroit Red Wings," the Toronto Sun reports.

Volt Dolt
"With journalists and firefighters gathered nearby, members of the Chicago Fire Department ripped apart an already battered Chevy Volt last week," Cars.com reports. "No, it wasn't retribution for Chevrolet's sponsorship of last season's Green Bay Packers. It's part of a joint effort by Chevrolet and the National Fire Protection Association, which is funded by a $4.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, to educate emergency responders about strategies for dealing with electric-vehicle crashes."

Can't you just, um, unplug them?

Web Wobblies
"In a first for the Writers Guild of America East, the union has added Web-only content writers/producers to its roster of represented employees," Broadcasting & Cable reports.

"According to the union, the stations' four web-only news staffers at CBS' WBBM-TV Chicago voted Aug. 27 to join the guild."

Or maybe we should call them Webblies.

Psst . . .
"By the way," he says, in a voice that usually means I'm going to get yelled at for leaving a beer can on the porch. "Your mother just came home. She has breast cancer."

And with that, he turns back to the computer.
