The [Wednesday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes

I've got a lot of things going on, so I'm going to take a day off from the column. But we do have some new Beachwood material:

* We're glad to have our former What I Watched Last Night writer Pat Bataillon back on our pages. He returns with The CTA Chronicles: That Smell.

Feel free to submit your own tale for this feature. We'd also like to see readers submissions for The Chili Chronicles and The Salad Bar Series.

In fact, most of our regular features are open for submissions.

* Beachwood language expert Nancy Simon is back today with Rebalancing The World, which examines the latest trendy word.

* The NBA has a new superstar in the making, our very own Dan O'Shea writes in Fantasy Fix. Find out who it is.


And I've got some posts at

* Bring 'Em On! Thomson wants terrorists.

* Daleys Divorce Stroger. Too stupid to back.

* Voters Flunk Poll Questions. Most are idiots.

* Imagining Gov. Hendon. It could happen if you don't stop him.

* McKenna Faces Firing Squad. Seeds of candidacy questioned.


In addition, Beachwood family members doing outstanding work:

* "Living in Emergency, which had [Michael] Moore made it would have looked like the pandering, pathetic human relief commercials (with laugh track) that pepper late-night television, represents everything that's right with documentaries," Marilyn Ferdinand writes at the stupendous Ferdy On Films.

"It presents in intimate and unflinching detail the compelling story of the humanitarian efforts of Medecins Sans Frontieres, aka Doctors Without Borders, an international organization that provides emergency medical care to people afflicted by armed conflict, epidemics, healthcare exclusion, and natural or manmade disasters. I'm deeply pleased that it was singled out for Oscar consideration over the popular choice."

* Horse With A Mullet, at the also-stupendous Reading With Scissors.


I'll be back tomorrow.
