The [Tuesday] Papers

Things are running late as they are wont to do on Tuesdays; a really fun time at the venerable Beachwood Inn last night. Thanks in particular to Beachwood contributors J.J. Tindall, Jim "Coach" Coffman and special guest Allison Hantschel from First Draft.

Beachwood Bill, you are a hero. You and your fellow Occupiers have already changed the world.

I have to leave shortly for a meeting downtown so when I return I'll just start working on Wednesday's Beachwood and try to get to a lot of promised posts as well as items piling up for this column.

For today, here's what we have:

* Just How Much Can The State Restrict A Peaceful Protest?

"As protests supporting Occupy Wall Street have swelled in recent weeks, hundreds of demonstrators have been arrested across the U.S. This weekend, nearly 100 people were arrested in New York and 175 in Chicago. More than 100 protesters were arrested in Boston last week; a few weeks ago, 700 were arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge.

"So, if the First Amendment guarantees the right to peaceable assembly, why do peaceful protestors keep getting arrested - and sometimes pepper-sprayed and beaten up?"

* Bears Arrive in London to NFL Fever!

Cuba Gooding Jr. on hand for a screening of Jerry Maguire. Seriously.

* The McDonald's Channel Is Here And In High Definition.

"What if," McDonald's asks, "you could launch a network for an audience that was already there?"

* George Harrison in Chicago.

With the world having a George Harrison moment, we take a look at his 1974 twi-night doubleheader at the old Chicago Stadium.
