The [Tuesday] Papers

I'm attending to other business today; the Beachwood will return tomorrow.

In the meantime, I'll fill up this space with social media and other odds and ends.

*

The Weekend In Chicago Rock
Featuring: Rule of Thirds; Duncan Reid & the Big Heads; High Alert, The Vespers, Twerps; Caribou; Exodus; Foxygen; Dr. Dog; Cartel; Testament; Damon Johnson; Shikari; mewithoutYou; Papadosio; and Scammers.

Rahm's Rampages
"There's totally something here," our very own Tim Willette writes.

Emanuel's campaign says the mayor frequently wanders shopping aisles to meet voters in what he calls "Wal-Mart walkabouts," "Target town halls" and "Mariano meetings."

Home Depot harangues, TJ Maxx tirades . . .

*

Pope Smoke
"I would be surprised if Pope actually lost, given he's held the seat since 1999, is a particularly rubbery rubber stamp for whoever's in the mayor's seat, sold the air quality of his ward for a $30,000 campaign contribution, and managed to wrangle an endorsement out of the Sun-Times despite hiring someone on a do-not-hire list. He has the exact pedigree of a guy who hangs around the city council until the day he dies, or retires and appoints his offspring."

- Our very own Natasha Julius

"The fundamental cause of our state's financial woes has nothing to do with exorbitant spending, exorbitant pensions or 'big government,'" former Green gubernatorial candidate Rich Whitney writes for the Southern.

"Illinois has the smallest number of state employees per capita in the United States, at 4.1 per 1,000 residents. And while the occasional abusers of our public pension systems make headlines, the media rarely tells the other part of the story: Illinois ranks in the bottom one-fifth of all states for retirement benefits paid to its state workers.

"The root cause of the problem is that we have one of the most regressive - and stupidest - tax systems in the United States."
