The [Tuesday] Papers

"Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts on Monday told the Tribune's editorial board he doesn't have a Plan B to come up with $200 million if the state rejects his proposal to borrow that money in a bond offering," the paper reports.

Huh. I guess there's nowhere else for the Ricketts' to turn.

Oh, wait:

"The family patriarch, J. Joe Ricketts, grew up in Omaha and started a discount stock brokerage. In the 1990s he transformed the company into an Internet trading powerhouse now known as TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. He is ranked among the world's billionaires, according to Forbes magazine, with an estimated net worth of $1.2 billion. Shares of the company are also owned by his wife and four children."
