The [Tuesday] Papers

Let's look around, shall we?

1. "We are researching a product," Chicago chef Homaro Cantu tells Super Chef. "You drink alcohol, but won't give you a hangover. It is all about healthier and more fun. We are re-thinking alcoholic beverages. You will be able to drink, and then wait twenty minutes and you will be sober. It will eliminate all kinds of problems. It might even eliminate alcoholism."

Or double it.

2. The trend-setting Chicago Wolves are not only serving their Vancouver Canuck masters well but they're setting the bar when it comes to Twitter and individual goal songs, according to this report out of Canada.

3. Today in Duh.

Runner-up.

4. WBEZ misses the point about the new speed cameras that will soon blanket the city. More like it.

5. It still blows me away that there are vending machines in schools. But these reports also avert the obvious: How much money do the schools get and who lobbied whom to get the machines there in the first place?

Related: Yet another way CPS is doing school lunch wrong.

6. Tucker Carlson vs. Bill Ayers.

7. "Madonna's first tour since 2009 won't include a stop in Michigan."

That's okay, Clint Eastwood's didn't either.

8. "The next time you enjoy a mouth-puckering box of Lemonheads or a fiery handful of Atomic FireBalls, give a moment of silent thanks to their inventor, Nello Ferrara, who passed away Friday at the age of 93. We'd like to think he's in a place where chocolate waterfalls flow and sugar falls like sweet rain," writes Mary Beth Quirk for The Consumerist.

Related: Nello Ferrara, 93, Invented Lemonheads, Saw MacArthur In Occupied Japan, Sang With Sinatra.

"Ferrara, the chairman of Chicago's Ferrara Pan Candy Co., died Friday at his home in River Forest at age 93."

9. ThyssenKrupp apologizes.

10. Phoenix woman entirely too happy that Portillo's is coming to town.

11. "Eau Claire-based Menard, Inc. has agreed to pay about $1 million to black store employees in its Midwest home improvement stores who claimed they were passed over for promotions because of their race," the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reports.

"The settlement was approved two weeks ago by a Chicago arbitrator, and the 700 workers who ranged from assistant department managers to store managers can begin filing claims for their share of the money Feb. 23."

12. "Those pondering why you'd launch a sports car in Chicago in the middle of February will get their answer when they look at the photos of the 2013 Nissan 370Z," Jalopnik reports. "This is the least you can do to a car and call it an upgrade. Look, vertical LED daytime running lights!"

13. Edgebrook Glen: Marketing vs. Reality.

14. Drewrys Beer: More Fun In A Glass!
