The [Wednesday] Papers

The Tribune reports that not a single food truck application has been approved by the Emanuel administration after the city council passed an ordinance ostensibly allowing the practice but which many critics said was geared more toward protecting brick-and-mortar restaurants than nurturing a new and potentially lucrative industry.

No food trucks for you!

Food Fight
"A major contract battle has broken out over renewal of lucrative pacts to manage and provide food services at the Chicago Bears' stadium, and with bragging rights - and a lot of money - on the table, the contenders reportedly are loading up with some heavy political clout," Greg Hinz reports for Crain's.

"Among those who reportedly are involved are veteran media consultants Guy Chipparoni, whose firm represents Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz, and Dennis Culloton, whose clients include Cubs owner Tom Ricketts. Among others are a former top aide to ex-Mayor Richard M. Daley, Terry Teele; Mayor Rahm Emanuel's election lawyer, Mike Kasper, and Metropolitan Sanitary District Commissioner Mike Alvarez.

So, the usual suspects.


Maybe it's just a practice run for the multiple battles about to break out for Chicago casino contracts.

Chicago In A Bottle
Not quite what I expected, which was a story about a clever entrepreneur selling the real scents of Chicago, from the smell of pork bellies and hog futures to the stink of clout lists and contracts.

The Political Odds
Early money on Robin Kelly looking good.

Heart Stopping
"The hot-selling blood-thinner Plavix is blamed for more than ten deaths in two Chicago lawsuits that charge the expensive drug is no better than aspirin, costs 100 times more and increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, internal bldding and other complications," Consumer Affairs reports.

Our Constitutional Scholar President
"Of course, while everyone in Washington, and the courtier press that serves them, were endlessly droning on and on about the Gentle Fiscal Incline, the Bill Of Rights closed out 2012 by having one of the worst weeks it's had in the two centuries of its existence," Charles Pierce writes for Esquire.

And the Bush tax cuts are now permanent. Mission accomplished!
