The [Wednesday] Papers
BREAKING: Is Tom Dart out?
We'll update our Mayoral Odds later today.
"[Jeffrey] Kaput was pulled over late Monday at 5518 W. Augusta Blvd. by an Area 5 robbery mission team after police had received a description from a witness of a car that had collided with one of the LAZ parking boxes, according to a police report."
He was also charged with misdemeanor possession of a crack pipe, so maybe not the folk hero we hoped for, but he certainly couldn't have acted alone, could he?

"Lavon Evans Jr. filed the lawsuit in Jones County Circuit Court in Mississippi in 2008. It sought $150 million in damages from attorney Joel Held, who worked at the Dallas office of the Baker & Mackenzie law firm."
Worst Candidate He Has Seen In Years
"The commissioner's office did not respond to two requests for an interview. On the third request, her scheduler said he was unable to schedule a phone interview at this time; he said AustinTalks could call back later in the week to try again to make an appointment, but that he was 'not going to promise anything.'"
"The Audubon High School follows behind Alcott High School for the Humanities and Ogden International High School, both of which opened in Fall 2009. Alcott Elementary and High School are in Lincoln Park; while Ogden Elementary School is on the Gold Coast, but the high school is located in West Town.
"These three high schools are among new public schools in the city, although they serve students in areas that were not identified as needing performing options in a 2004 report done by the Illinois Facilities Fund. That report was supposed to set the stage for the Renaissance 2010 initiative, which was Mayor Richard Daley's project to improve education by opening new schools.
"There are no South Side schools that serve children from kindergarten through 12th grade. On the West Side, Spry School has an elementary and high school."
"The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is bringing its deer donation initiative back to the area. The 'Target Hunger Now!' initiative encourages hunters to bring venison to food banks. Then state officials have it cooked into such items as venison tacos and chili."
