The [Wednesday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes

-

BREAKING 10:20 A.M.: "Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is expected to announce today that she'll seek re-election to her current office and bypass bids for governor or U.S. Senate, a source told the Tribune."

-

1. "President Obama has developed a curious habit of taking one legal position in his public statements and an altogether contrary position in the courtroom," our very own Sam Singer writes in Obama's Justice.

2. "And here I thought I'd really seen everything at the chain restaurant where I used to work, what with the music-themed stores and constant flow of guests from The Jerry Springer Show," writes our very own Patty Hunter in At Your Service. "I saw more little people making out with transgender hookers than I ever thought possible, and employees doing enough cocaine to give a DEA agent the shivers."

3. Living On The Ledge. Is that glass really safe?

4. "Former University of Illinois law school dean Heidi Hurd is scheduled to testify today to the commission examining the school's clout admissions, and the key question for Hurd may turn out to be this: Was she joking?"

5. "If Mayor Richard M. Daley follows precedent, he will appoint a pastor who equates homosexuality to drug addiction to the city council before the month is out."

6. About Berry Gordy . . .

7. "China and the United States are kicking up a trade war over chicken in which Beijing effectively has given the boot to millions of dollars worth of U.S. chicken, about half of which is chicken feet."

8. Three status updates from John Kuczaj:

* "Had lunch at Weber Grill . . . ordered a burger and asked them to make it in a George Foreman Grill. Owner Potsie Weber came out special to slap me then sing a song."

* "The MJ tribute show looks really great . . . too bad Michael Jackson can't die every week."

[Name deleted]: It's too bad he wasn't shown this kind of love when he was *here.* I doubt people will learn, though . . .

Kuczaj: You are correct . . . sad that so many people did not buy his albums until after he died.

* "Steve McNair's mistress bought a gun two days before that gun was used in their deaths . . .kinda thin evidence. Also, she registered 'www.IAmKillingSteveMcNair.com' with GoDaddy last week. Still, I'm not convinced."

9. "A tour bus company is planning a trip that will take Michael Jackson fans to his boyhood home in Gary and other Jackson family related sites in the city.

"Chicago-based JWR Tours is advertising what it calls 'an amazing journey' with insider guides for the trips leaving from Chicago, costing $55 for adults and $45 for children."

10. That's all I have time for today.
