The [Tuesday] Papers

Unexpectedly ran into The Klonsky Brothers at a Logan Square coffee shop this morning and had a lively conversation worthy of Hitting Left, and this afternoon I'm meeting a dear Chicago ex-pat who has subsequently lived in Fiji, China and New York City, so just some quick hits.

* Where Should A Chicago Casino Go?

I'll have more to say about this later - I think JB Pritzker is abominally wrong about preferring an underserved neighborhood to downtown - but for now, I'll just re-up this Beachwood beauty:

Welcome To The New Chicago Casino!

Granted, the material is dated, but it's at least worth the price of admission.

FYI: I'm all for sports betting, but not so keen on casinos.

More on that later, too.

* Iconoclastic Chicago Architect Stanley Tigerman, Who Shaped The City With His Buildings And Ideas, Dies At 88.

I only had the pleasure of talking to Tigerman once, but it yielded a memorable quote that readers seemed to love, though some of the more staid among us were appalled:

Let's be clear. The Sun-Times Building has never been hailed as great architecture. Not even close, leading professionals say. John Vinci calls it "a dog." Stanley Tigerman calls it "that funny little fucked-up building." Franz Schulze calls it "undistinguished, ordinary, second-rate." But the Sun-Times Building does belong to a place and time.

That funny little fucked-up building. Perfect.

* Ed Burke Pleads Not Guilty On Political Corruption Charges.

Just to get in front of this, if anyone says or writes that the only or real thing Burke is guilty of is not changing with the times, they are not worthy of publicly observing Chicago politics. Burke has been on the council for 50 years, and he's seen colleagues sent to the pokey for far, far less than he's accused of. Perhaps his worst crime is thinking he was untouchable, but don't give me that malarkey about how times have changed. As prosecutors have said for years, fraud and bribery has always been fraud and bribery. The tolerance for it within the political culture - and City Hall - may have changed, but the law and the feeling in the U.S. Attorney's Office has not.

* University Of Chicago Lab Middle School To Reprint Yearbook After 'Circle Game' Photos.

That's at least the fourth yearbook re-do in the Chicago area this year; Walter Payton College Prep, Highland Park High School, and Oak Park and River Forest High School have already sent their yearbooks back to the printer for the same or similar reasons.

My question is this: What about the yearbook advisors? Is anyone editing these things?

I also thought of saying, "It's not OK," but thought that might be a little too cute, considering the subject matter is no joke.
