The [Wednesday] Papers

1. "Katherine Kalnes, the Chicago-based artist who created the incredible Justin Bieber pancake, has just released an all new delicious flapjack morsel in the shape of the already-delicious Ryan Gosling, and we're delighted to share this true work of art, made with a 'batter blaster,' frosting, peanut butter and raisins with all of you," Perez Hilton notes.

Kalnes has also done Kelly Ripa, Stephen Colbert, Ellen DeGeneres and others, using Batter Blaster.

Here's a slide show of her pancake works.


Another Kalnes creation won an honorable mention at the 2007 Edible Book Festival at the University of Illinois, where she studied painting.

2. Mob Wives: Chicago To Debut In The Spring On VH1.

"Mob Wives: Chicago will introduce a new cast of women suffering the stronzi and agita of their Mafiosi connections," VH1 says.

3. "A Loyola University Chicago journalism professor who was filming an arrest near the Water Tower Campus over the weekend ended up getting handcuffed by a Chicago police officer - the cop then allegedly deleted the video file, in a possible violation of the law."

4. Rahm's Budget Win Is A Loss For Most Chicagoans.

5. Leading Flavor Experts Are Red Hot for Tart Cherries.

"Restaurateur Michael Moorman, owner of popular cafe m.henry and recently opened m.henrietta in Chicago, says he's been using tart cherries as a featured ingredient in everything from salads to sauces to baked goods."

6. "Mayor Rahm Emanuel delivers his first major speech for President Barack Obama Saturday in Des Moines," Lynn Sweet reports for the Sun-Times.

"The event is sold-out - 1,500 are expected to attend, with tickets ranging from $100 to $10,000 which includes a VIP reception with Emanuel."

Of course, you can meet with the mayor for free if you're a millionaire.

"Much of his mayoral schedule is taken up by meetings and calls with wealthy out-of-towners, many of whom have donated to his campaign," the Reader reports in The Mayor's Millionaire Club. "Indeed, it seems Emanuel has learned from his mentor, President Clinton. Under Clinton, the White House was open to big donors who got to spend the night in the Lincoln bedroom. In Emanuel's case, he either invites them into his City Hall office or makes time to hang out at one of his favorite haunts."


"Some days, Emanuel meets with more multimillionaires within an afternoon than most of us will cross paths with during our entire lives . . . he doesn't regularly hold face-to-face meetings with social service organizations, community groups, or neighborhood activist types."


"Emanuel did meet with what his schedule makers called 'community leaders' - who turned out to be some of the most prominent black members of Chicago's business and social elite: Frank Clark, CEO of ComEd; Marty Nesbitt, one of President Obama's best friends; Terry Peterson, Mayor Daley's former campaign manager and current president of the CTA board; Avis LaVelle, spokeswoman for the company that owns Chicago's parking meter system; and James Reynolds, CEO of Loop Capital Markets, one of the most successful minority-owned investment banking firms in Chicago.

"Of course Emanuel always seems to find time for Juan Rangel, CEO of the United Neighborhood Organization, which receives $27 million a year in public funds to operate nine charter schools."


Rahm Not Tough Enough To Face Mental Health Advocates.

7. "As part of its cultural diplomacy program, the U.S. embassy brought the FEW Collective, a hip-hop troupe from Chicago, to Islamabad, where they danced, rapped and recited poetry to a Westernized, educated elite audience of young Pakistanis," Reuters reports.

8. Meet Chicago's Kangoo Crew.
