The [Wednesday] Papers

"I believe the United States Congress owes the American people a final vote on health care reform," Mr. Obama said during a 20-minute speech in the East Room of the White House.

- March 4, 2010, New York Times


House May Try To Pass Senate Health-Care Bill Without Voting On It

- March 15, 2010, Washington Post

March Madness
"President Barack Obama predicts Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky and Villanova to make the men's basketball Final Four," AP reports.

If any of those teams don't have enough points to make it into the Final Four, Obama will huddle with NCAA officials and try to advance them through reconciliation.

Jobs Candidate
Cheryle Robinson Jackson, the first female president and CEO of the Chicago Urban League, is committed to public service and focused on improving the lives of people.

[M]y passion is economic development."

- August 19, 2009, the Defender

Former U.S. Senate candidate Cheryle Jackson has been named vice president of government affairs and corporate development for AAR, a Wood Dale-based company that supplies services and goods to the aerospace and defense industry.

In her new role, "I'll be helping the company grow by finding strategic alliances and partnerships," she said.

Cry For Help
"Billy Corgan has tapped legendary Chicago photographer Art Shay to chronicle him for the next three years, as the Smashing Pumpkins rocker completes 40 new songs," Bill Zwecker reports.

The project will tentatively be called Pay Attention To Me, Dammit!

Forrest, Trees
"Sneed hears rumbles White House pressure is being put on Quinn, who favors a female sidekick, to select populist/Cook County Commissioner Forrest Claypool for the job."



"Word is Dem Cook County Commissioner Forrest Claypool is eyeing a run for the assessor's seat as an independent."



"[A]fter seven years of challenging the established Cook County leaders within his own party, many insiders are left wondering: Why isn't Claypool running for County Board president this time around since the field is relatively weak, reform is a key issue and he's been beating that drum for years?" CBS2 reported in January.

"'Well I certainly expected to be running again and I planned to run again,' Claypool said. 'But a friend of mine felt like we had developed some ideas and a business model for integrated services and answers about nationalized health care reform, so I had to make a decision between the two and it was the hardest decision of my life.'"

Maybe cashing in on health care reform doesn't look so hot anymore.

NBC Hates Women
Chicago's most misogynist news site strikes again.


One of the commenters suggests the image in question was auto-generated. I can't say that it wasn't, but I can say that when I wrote for I chose the images myself for my posts; it was one of the responsibilities assigned to writers.


As I've briefly recounted before, I became so alarmed at the sudden prevalence of scantily clad, buxom women all over the site (and the sophomoric headlines and text wrapped around them) after some new editors were brought in - on orders from New York to make the site "salacious" - that I raised the issue with my minder there (a woman) and was assured that "this is not the direction the site is going."

That was nine months ago.

Jobs For The Zombie Apocalypse
"An advanced degree in European film studies or Social Media Marketing isn't going to do me any good when the dead rise from their graves to feed upon the living," our very own Drew Adamek writes. "Humanity will need people who can build things from scratch, with little or no natural resources, all while running from flesh-eating hordes."
