The [Wednesday] Papers

Monologue . . .

"Chicago, long home to traders of everything from stock options to soybean futures, is increasingly adding cryptocurrencies to its domain," Bloomberg reports.

"Fireworks were expected at Wednesday's Chicago City Council meeting, as the Fraternal Order of Police was urging all its members to storm City Hall in a protest against Mayor Rahm Emanuel," NBC Chicago reports.

If the police become protesters, who will become the police in order to kick the shit out of them? Schrodinger's cops!

Sure, but he's turned his front on police reform.

Maximo, the largest dinosaur ever uncovered, is moving into the Field museum, CBS Chicago reports.

Huh, I thought Ed Burke was the largest uncovered dinosaur.

-

Study: Guns In Chicago Just '2.5 Handshakes' Away.

That's just half a handshake more than it took to wire the Obama Presidential Library Center deal.

State Rep. Says She's Facing Retaliation for Speaking Out Against Madigan.

Michael Madigan must be losing his touch; usually he avoids these kinds of problems by engaging in pretaliation.
