The [Tuesday] Papers

"Newt Gingrich might feel like Rocky Balboa when he takes the stage at campaign events to Survivor's 1982 hit 'Eye of the Tiger,"' but it's the co-writer of the song who is ready for a fight," the Sun-Times reports.

"Chicago-born Frankie Sullivan sued Gingrich in federal court Monday, saying the Republican presidential candidate is using his Rocky III anthem in his campaign without permission.

"Sullivan, who has a home in the northwest suburbs, insisted it's not about politics. It's about someone who should know better using his copyright material for free."

Here's my favorite part, though:

"Sullivan didn't want to get into whether he likes Gingrich or his politics. His co-writer on the song, fellow Survivor founding member Jim Peterik, however, gave Gingrich a partial endorsement.

"'My wife is a big fan,' Peterik said. 'I'm becoming a fan of Newt Gingrich. He has a mind of his own. He's not a talking head. Originally, I didn't like him, but look at the competition. He's looking better and better.'

"Peterik described himself as 'very apolitical' - and wouldn't draw a line on which politician should use 'Eye' for events.

"'If someone is out there trying to make a difference, let him do it . . . Unless it was Adolf Hitler,' Peterik said."

Anyone but Hitler, that's where he draws the line.

"Walgreen Co. said Monday it is buying prescription files and inventory from 33 Kmart pharmacies in 16 states," AP reports.

Kmart has pharmacies? Ewww!

Race Wars
Chicago remains the nation's most segregated big city.

Second To None!

*

So much for yet another part of Richard M. Daley's crumbling legacy.

*

The funny thing, though, is that the racially-riven city Daley supposedly healed was racially-riven because of white people, not black. Namely, Ed Burke and Ed Vrdolyak. Daley left Burke in place - and so did Rahm Emanuel.

*

Harold Washington wasn't allowed to heal the city; only a white mayor was given permission to do that. After all, Chicago needs either a white or a wet mayor.

Don't Tell My Mom
This plus this equals this.

Nuke Puke
"The seemingly minor accident at Exelon Nuclear's Byron Generating Station about 95 miles north of Chicago, which resulted in a small release of radioactive Tritium on Monday, evokes memories of then-Sen. Obama's deep connections to the Illinois energy giant and the cash collected from Exelon by Obama, David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel," Politico reports.

Mayor Transparency Strikes Again
"Mayor Rahm Emanuel is not commenting directly on whether it is appropriate for faith-based groups that are backing of his education agenda to get millions of dollars worth of city contracts," CBS 2 reports.

Nor indirectly.
