The [Tuesday] Papers

I'm almost ready to write again.

In fact, I thought I would today.

But frankly, I just haven't recovered the mental strength yet to take on Bruce Rauner's motorcycle jacket-clad re-election announcement and the media coverage thereof.

Nor what a phony baloney Forrest Claypool is.

Or that completely insane Amazon bid, and how the media has assumed ownership of it as the collective "we" who could want nothing more than to give one of the world's richest companies more than $2 billion in tax breaks and "incentives."

The more profitable a company is, the more public subsidies it gets from government? How could any principled Democrat or Republican be in favor of that? These kinds of packages are huge (but rarely questioned) violations of both liberal and conservative values.

But boy, the bragging rights! Laquan who? Amazon, that's who!

Just keep your eye on who will pay what - and who will benefit. And who will get hurt.

In the meantime, enjoy this new review of Chicago Town's Salted Caramel Dessert Pizza, apparently exclusive to Iceland, as well as new material throughout the site again today as well as our social media samples.
