The [Wednesday] Papers

The Papers will return on Monday, June 2nd, in part because I'm preparing to move this weekend eight blocks up Milwaukee Avenue to the California stop. If anyone wants to help, let me know; many hands make light work (as Cameron Poe once said). I really don't have much besides books and files.

But that doesn't mean there won't be any new Beachwood content over the next few days. To wit:

* Did Comcast Refuse This Chicago Cannabis Conference Commercial?

Organizers: "We are not understanding how killing cancer or stopping seizures in epileptic children are too controversial."

* House Committee Puts NSA On Notice Over Encryption Standards.

Spy agency deliberately lessened standards and willfully diminished American citizens' and businesses' cyber-security for their own purposes.

* Fantasy Fix: Astrology.

How is it that this starting pitcher was still available in more than 30% of Yahoo! leagues as of Monday?

* The Cub Factor: Yeah, the CF might not happen this week. I'll make it twice as good next week.


ICYMI: If you haven't yet, I highly encourage you to listen at least to Angela Caputo's segment on this week's Beachwood Radio Hour (starting at 23:51) for the harrowing story that is Chicago's Mortgage Street.


Also, The Beachwood Radio Criminal Justice Hour called it . . .


* There's A Hero Replacing Chicago's Horrible Potholes With Mosaics.

Reminder: Potholes aren't just a Chicago problem. I'm actually not into blaming Rahm on this one.

* Summer Programs Facing Cuts In Federal Dollars.

The exact programs we need to help curb violence.
