The [Tuesday] Papers

1. Bill Daley is returning to Chicago to:

A) Work on comprehensive parking meter lease reform.

B) Pretend for the umpteenth time that he's running for governor or U.S. Senator.

C) Lay the groundwork for Patrick Daley's mayoral campaign.

D) Enjoy the Midwest's crisp, refreshing air.

2. The governor got the PR hit this morning that he negotiated with legislators in return for signing a corporate tax giveaway under cover of darkness.


"Gov. Pat Quinn on Tuesday signed legislation that expands the state's earned-income tax credit. It's now 5 percent of the federal credit, would climb to 7.5 percent next year and 10 percent the year after," AP reports.

"State officials say it translates into about $100 a year per family."


The rich get cake; the poor get crumbs.

3. Apparently you won't have to show ID to buy Drano after all; the last thing legislators want to do is make it more difficult to flush your money down the drain.

4. Obama's new 1% club.

5. Obama's old 1% club.

6. Air Tran, Frontier To Battle It Out For Chicago-Cancun Rights.

7. Chicago Boogie: Better than Milwaukee's sound.

8. River Rats Swim Onto Chicago Menus.

9. "City Hall has fired Marvin Ditkowsky, an 87-year-old Department of Aviation police officer at O'Hare Airport, for violating the city's residency ordinance - for the past 15 years.

"In August, a Chicago Sun-Times reporter found Ditkowsky living in Norridge, just across the street from Chicago's city limits."

10. NewsVault: High-Rise Rescue. It happened in 1996.

11. Todd Stroger Still Todd Stroger.

12. A DIY Response To Poverty: Start your own food bank.
