The [Tuesday] Papers

Always tough following a late night at the bar, even if it was relatively slow. Hard to get to sleep for awhile once I'm home no matter how tired . . . after all, there's catching up on Facebook and texting Bob and committing anecdotes about incidents and customers to memory for that book I'll probably never write . . . so just trying to get going here. It's not easy doing this every day! Here's what we've got so far:

* Spock's Farewell: It happened in Rosemont.

* MLS Super Tuesday: Fire vs. Sounders.

* Moo & Oink Gets The Boink: A video tribute.

More to come.

And here we go:

1. Luol Deng featured on Brixton pound notes.

2. Tribune managers finally properly incentivized. Talk about high maintenance, sheesh . . .

3. Barred from going Brazilian.

4. And by city, they mean you and I.

5. New ticket-writing system allows cops to keep hands free.

6. Steve Dolinsky vows to never eat at Trotter's again.

7. Wait, I Think The Bears Just Wasted Another Timeout.

8. Chicagoans Find Use For Awful Marilyn Monroe Statue After All.

9. "The 1980s were the beginning of the end for the T-20 on the corporate level, as production in Chicago ceased after Sunbeam was sold in the merger and acquisition boom. Sunbeam had been a great Chicago manufacturer with roots in the Stockyards and sheep shearing. It may have lost much of its culture with its move to Florida. I've found no smoking bagel, but the demise of the model's successor in 1997 points to the advent of the self-anointed 'Rambo in Pinstripes,' Chainsaw Al Dunlap as CEO in 1996."

10. "I think one of the problems with the White House is that it's been too set apart. It's been too Chicago-centric, and it needs to get out," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). "Clinton didn't just talk to four leaders, he picked up the phone and he kind of said, 'I really need your vote on this.'"

11. Unrest Grows In Land Of The Angry And Home Of The Fearful.

12. "At first, Alaa Basatneh kept quiet after receiving a threatening message to her Facebook account in mid-August, worried it would frighten her parents," the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

"A 19-year-old Syrian activist who lives outside the U.S. city of Chicago with her family, Basatneh is one of several people who administer a prominent anti-government Facebook page, Syrian Days of Rage, and coordinate with protesters to post their messages, photos and videos.

'''I was in denial,' she said. 'I was doing all this, but I thought, They can't reach me. And then the minute I saw the e-mail, I thought: there's no more denial. My name is in the watch list. I was scared.'''

Of course, if the Syrian government decided she was an enemy combatant, what would preclude them from justifiably assassinating her on American soil? Isn't that what America does now?

13. "Cans of the controversial alcoholic drink Four Loko are getting a new label," WGN reports.

"The Chicago Based company, Phusion Projects, has agreed to disclose on labels the amount of alcohol contained in a 23.5-ounce can of the malt beverage. The new labels will disclose that a can of Four Loko contains as much alcohol as four or five cans of beer."
