The [Tuesday] Papers
Some of our more astute readers may have noticed that our left rail is missing from this page today. That's because I accidentally deleted the template for it. I should never be allowed to go anywhere near the technology. We will restore it as soon as we figure out how.

"About 200 people - many wearing anti-Wal-Mart buttons and stickers - filed into the Wellington Avenue United Church of Christ to hear the proposal."
Huh. What would Jesus do? Shop at Costco?
"The issue of affordable housing played a significant role in last week's local election. Local political organization Winnetka Home Owners Association, which was re-energized in the fall by its opposition to the plan, was instrumental in its backing of the three village council candidates who went on to win April 5."
Huh. What would Jesus do? Methinks he would smite the village. Or at least the home owners association.

"During a village board meeting Monday, Interim Village Manager Terry Burghard brought to the attention of trustees an event by the local Advanced Auto Parts that allows monster truck fans to view one of their favorite vehicles.
"The Grave Digger is the most popular truck, said Steven Czerak, general manager of the store, and is only second to Big Foot. It will be available for viewing at the store on April 29.
"Advanced Auto Parts owns the title sponsorship for the monster truck series known as Monster Jam.
"This has some officials worried, though, about the large crowds it will attract and issues with parking. Some felt there will be the potential for excited guests to be crossing the heavily traveled Roosevelt Road because of a lack of available parking near the store."
Huh. What would Jesus do? He'd cross the street. After all, he's already dead.
That's Pat Quinn's Brain on Budgets!
Huh. What would Jesus do? Methinks he would send as many of the state's mental health clients as possible to live in affordable housing in Winnetka.
