The [Wednesday] Papers

"If state lawmakers were to approve the slots, Chicago would become the first U.S. city outside Nevada to offer gambling at an airport," the Tribune reports.

"Currently, only McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas and Reno-Tahoe International Airport offer slot machines.

"In both those airports, the blinking lights and ringing bells of the slots are visible on the terminals, greeting travelers as they walk off a plane. The Emanuel administration, however, does not envision the same kind of atmosphere in Chicago.

"If this does move forward, it will not be like Las Vegas where slots are visible as soon as you walk off a plane,' said Sarah Hamilton, a spokeswoman for the mayor. "Any slot machines would be in a secured, separate area similar to a private airline club - where individuals can access, but they are not readily visible to people traveling through the airport."

Isn't being readily visible to people traveling through the airport the whole point? Otherwise you might as well put slots in Arby's.

Road Trip
"Less than half of state road fund money spent in the last decade went to direct road construction costs, a new audit revealed Tuesday," the Springfield State Journal-Register reports.

"Instead, Auditor General William Holland found the road fund was used for things like state police and secretary of state salaries and was overcharged for its share of expenses related to employee group health insurance and workers' compensation."

In Illinois, you can't spell fund without the f-u-n.
