The [Tuesday] Papers

Today's Teachers Strike Notebook is World-Class Teachers and Second-Rate Pols.

And now, the rest of the news . . .

1. A source tells the Tribune that the Cactus Bar & Grill was the target of alleged teen bomber Adel Daoud. The Cactus is adjacent to Cal's, so it's pretty much the same thing.

2. "The number of inmates locked up in Illinois prisons is at an all-time high, according to an Associated Press analysis, that coincides with Gov. Pat Quinn's battle with state employees over closing correctional facilities.

"The Department of Corrections disputes the AP's findings and says the number is about 100 inmates lower. But the department's own numbers confirm that the prison population has grown to near-record highs despite its prediction of a decline in incarcerations.

"The AP's review of Corrections Department data show the population hit 49,154 over the weekend. That's 19 inmates more than the previous record, which the agency said last week was set Oct. 6."

3. Apparently there's a rule that every news organization on Earth has to do this story - just like they did in 2008.

4. "At the beginning of 1949, Whitaker and Baxter, the directors of the A.M.A.'s National Education Campaign, entered national politics, setting up headquarters in Chicago, with a staff of thirty-seven," Jill Lepore writes for the New Yorker.

Whitaker and Baxter are responsible for many of the ills and evils of modern politics.

5. Derrick Rose is super genuine and wants to encourage kids to stay in school because you never know when someone will change your grades, conveniently lose your records and arrange for someone else will take the college entrance exams you keep failing.

6. Tammy Duckworth Says She's Not A Rubber Stamp For Obama.

But not in the way you might think.

There's a lot of work to do and I think that we need to let the Bush tax cuts for people who make more than a million dollars expire, it's one of the places where I disagree with the president. He would set that number at $250,000. I think that everyone should have their shot at making their first million, but then after that let's let the Bush tax cuts expire on your second million dollars.

7. Chicago's Secret Millionaire.

As long as we're talking about rich folk and poor kids.

8. The Late Late Show at Wrigley.

Tweeting the misery.

9. The Weekend in Chicago Rock Pt. 2.

More Riot Fest, Wilco and Rush.
