The [Wednesday] Papers
First, I've got more on the G8 fiasco or snafu or whatever we should call it, in The [G8] Papers. Good stuff!
Second, the day's news. There is no third.
Good. I know Tillman's lawyers have a duty to represent their client and that may mean accepting a settlement instead of going to trial, but that would deny the citizens of Chicago the opportunity to hear from Daley and others under oath. We deserve that.
"From a tiny apartment in the 2900 block of South Quinn, he allegedly helped steal the personal details of 860,000 Stratfor clients, including a former vice president and a former CIA director, whose names are redacted from the complaint. He also published the information for 60,000 credit cards users and used stolen credit card data to make charges of $700,000, the complaint alleges."
"When the Chicago Sun-Times called a phone listed in Hammond's twin brother's name Tuesday, a man who answered demanded to know 'where did you get this number? My name is Mickey Mouse and I don't know who Jeremy or Jason Hammond are.'"
"His mother, Rose Collins, offered a heavy sigh when informed that the FBI had arrested her 27-year-old son," the Tribune reports.

I wonder if Bowen would have spoken up had he been a cop working for Jon Burge.

"The White House announced Monday it would move the May 18-19 economic summit from Chicago to the presidential retreat in the mountains of northern Frederick County."
"'I'm trying to figure out how we can take advantage of it, businesswise,' Buehrer said, joking that he might open a hot dog stand where journalists are expected to gather."
"About half an hour after Monday's summit announcement, Thurmont's Cozy Inn was completely booked by members of the press corps, according to general manager Vickie Grinder. The hotel is turning people away, telling them to look outside of town for lodging.
"'Maybe I'll hurry and finish up my second floor,' joked Virginia LaRoche, owner of the Timeless Trends Boutique. 'That will be fantastic for us. We do a lot to get visitors to come to Thurmont, and I'm sure Thurmont will welcome them.'
"With more than 10 weeks to go, it's too early to stock up on inventory, 7-Eleven manager Kamal Shah said."
Oh, come on Kamal! It'll keep.
