The [Tuesday] Papers

1. I wonder how much this URL cost - or if they got it from the get-go.


The flip side is parked.


Sites with URLs like these are where news organizations should have gone a long time ago, but that's a broken record coming from me.

2. Charter Boat Bounty.

"A Detroit-area man has been arrested in connection with illegal charter boat operations on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan," AP reports.

No one noticed a strange dude was running tours on the river?

"The U.S. Attorney's office for the Northern District of Illinois says 33-year-old Christopher Garbowski is charged with violating an order of the captain of the port."

Was the order, "Who are you and what are you doing with that boat?"

"Authorities say groups paid for charters aboard a 40-foot powerboat during the 2017 and 2018 boating seasons. A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago says the boat had not been inspected or certified by the Coast Guard.

"The charges also allege the person acting as captain did not have proper Coast Guard credentials."


Aha, a photo of the boat and more details here.

3. Cloud Gategate.

Awaiting details on why it took seven people to deface The Bean.

4. It's Not Moth Man, But It Is A Moth.

"A giant moth native to South and Central America has been spotted in Chicago," NBC5 Chicago reports.

"South Shore resident Eric Allix Rogers captured a photo of the creature he says landed on the basement door to his building near 71st Street and South Shore Drive over the weekend. Rogers said he snapped a photo and left the moth alone.

"The animal has been identified as a Black Witch Moth, which can often be confused with a bat flying around at night, according to Doug Taron, chief curator at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum."


Somehow I feel like the moth, the boat and the bean could be tied together, maybe even with marijuana. Connect the dots, people.

5. In Chicago, 2020 Hopeful Pete Buttigieg Pitches Plan To Fight Systemic Racism.

Maybe he should fight it first in South Bend, amirite?

6. Mississippi Banning.

"A federal lawsuit filed by a Chicago vegan food maker says Mississippi is violating free-speech rights by banning makers of plant-based foods from using terms such as 'meatless meatballs' and 'vegan bacon,'" AP reports.

"The lawsuit was filed Monday by the Plant Based Foods Association and Chicago-based Upton's Naturals Co., which makes vegan products and sells them in many states, including Mississippi."


Maybe Mississippi banned those terms in good faith because they simply couldn't spell them.

7. Quantum Mystery.

Punk is good. Pop is good. Punk Pop is the absolute worst.

8. The John Kass Reader.

Nah, why put myself through it.

9. Man Claims Racial Profiling For Arrest While Attached To IV.

Here's your chance, Mayor Pete.

10. Bill Callahan Is Back.

Built in 1923 and abandoned since the 80s, the Stony Island Arts Bank was slated for demolition in 2012 when visual artist and University of Chicago professor Theaster Gates bought it from the city of Chicago for $1. $1! Gates then funded the renovation with the proceeds from art he made using found objects within the bank. Last year, it reopened to the public, and it is GLORIOUS.
