The [Wednesday] Papers

For the last week, I've been compiling the usual kinds of Chicago news to comment on but I find it hard to care much about county soda taxes, Rahm's shenanigans and even indictments (both handed down and pending) given the enormity of what we have before us now.

As a friend said on Twitter the other day to a follower's mundane, local political complaint: I ain't got time for that now.

This is dangerous, of course. The rest of the news still matters. Local pols - and corporate bigwigs - still mean you harm. We can't forget about city council hijinks, bureaucratic bollocks and, of course, Governor Burns in Springfield.

But Jesus F. Christ, we're really in for it now.

Neo-Nazis Declare New Balance The Official Shoes Of White People.

I'll get back to Chicago stuff sooner rather than later, but at the same time, normalization is even more dangerous than ignoring local concerns. The new state of America must now infuse everything we do. This ain't no fooling around.
