The [Tuesday] Papers

"Nobody does use the word 'poor' anymore, including the president," Bob Vondrasek of the South Austin Community Coalition tells AP in its report about how Obama's budget proposal will once again screw the poor, starting with cutting the totally huge heating fuel assistance program.


Obama is also proposing cuts in school library funds that would mean that "districts with at least 20 percent of its students who come from families who live below the poverty line will no longer have dedicated federal funds to specifically pay for school library materials," School Library Journal reports.


So poor people won't even have library books to burn for the heat they will no longer receive.


Obama is also proposing cuts to the Pell Grant college financial aid program, described by one university administrator as "crucial to helping lower-income students attend school."


No big deal. Poor kids growing up freezing and without books will hardly be thinking about college. See how all the pieces fit!

Now I wonder if he'll increase the federal prison budget.


No way.

CLARIFICATION 1:27 P.M.: Drat, this story is from last year. Will look for appropriate substitute. My bad.

UPDATE 1:53 P.M.: And here we go: The premise still works.


Even as . . .

"The proposed budget," The Crime Report says, "would cut funding for juvenile justice and child safety programs."


Well, you can't say the guy doesn't have a vision for America. Apparently his re-election campaign theme will be "Midnight in America."


Obama's plan working already.

The Chicago Cliche
Last night's episode of The Chicago Code was called "Hog Butcher."


It had its moments, but it's not there yet.


Meanwhile, thanks to everyone who turned out to the venerable Beachwood Inn for our special showing. Old Styles were had by all and "Irish mob" definitely was the most effective drinking game trigger; in fact, it worked for the rest of the night just by yelling it out at random long after the show was over. Good work, everybody.

Therefore throwing support to Miguel del Valle.
