The [Wednesday] Papers

"Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th) referred to the media as 'jackals' at a fund-raising event Tuesday night and said her husband was at home and doing well," the Sun-Times reports.

"Sandi Jackson celebrated her birthday singing into the microphone and dancing with guests as 'Let's Get it Started' blasted over the speakers.

"According to people who attended the private event that cost up to $5,000 a ticket, about 200 people filled the restaurant."

So a nice haul.


"On her way in to the party, Sandi Jackson, 49, told reporters outside she'd be right back," the Tribune reports. "But the media was not invited in to the event, and Jackson's representative later said she would not be giving comments to the media."


Haplessly, though, the Tribune, however, isn't sure the term "jackals" referred to the media, despite years of that term being used to refer to, um, the media.

"At one point, Jackson referred to 'jackals' and said they could 'stay outside.' Reporters and other media formed the only crowd outside the restaurant. But it's unclear if Jackson was referring to them."

Unclear to no one but the Trib, and I wasn't even there.

I'll have to cut the festivities short because I haven't been able to access the Sun-Times website for at least 45 minutes to complete the other items I had in mind for today. Their site appears to be down. Maybe response to Splash is so high the servers crashed.
