The [Tuesday] Papers

1. Oprah Mulling Broadway Roles.

"I have a stack of plays in my bag right now that I am reading," she said.


Such as The King and I, in which she would play both roles; and Rent, in which she would play the landlord.

2. Emanuel Releases Transition Team Report.


A) Concludes that he is both a resident and the mayor-elect.

B) Concludes transition of raw power to make everyone miserable nearly complete

C) Concludes no-snitch code regarding the hiring of Angelo Torres has not been compromised

3. Passengers Say Man Yelled 'God Is Great' On Flight To Chicago As He Rushed Cockpit Door.


How come no one ever yells "God Sucks!" in these situations?

4. 2 Accused Of Running Real Estate Ponzi Scheme.


Huh. Greenspan and Geithner not named.

5. Chicago Home Sales, Prices Tumble.


Huh. The phrase "Ponzi scheme" not used.

6. NU Inks Fitzgerald.


Choice questionable, however.

7. Groupon Wants To File For IPO Soon.


Before deal expires.
