The [Wednesday] Papers

1. Judge Reprimanded For Being Cheap Date.

"The Illinois Courts Commission has reprimanded an appellate judge from Urbana for using judicial resources to solicit paid lectures," the Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette reports.

"On Monday, the commission released its findings after the state's judicial inquiry board one year ago filed a complaint against Judge Robert Steigmann. The complaint alleged Steigmann used judicial resources, including his office's letterhead, to solicit paid lectures from police and medical groups."

*

Steigmann once "once likened himself to a 'cheap date' by charging $1,250 for a lecture."

2. Five Of The Strangest Theories In Albert Einstein's FBI File.

"From Nazi death beams to Soviet flying saucers, Einstein was often the subject of outlandish rumors - some of which the Bureau took very seriously."

3. What Am I Worth To Advertisers? My Obsessive Quest To Put A Price On My Attention.

"319. That's the number of discrete advertisements, both online and off, served to me over the course of one Tuesday in July. I know because I counted each and every one.

"Why catalog the informational noise that, in many cases, our brains have quite literally trained themselves to ignore? Hidden in plain sight, ad money is the invisible force that subsidizes many of the services we depend on - especially online, where keeping up with friends, reading the news, or streaming music is ostensibly 'free.' I wanted to to find out exactly what my eyeballs are worth . . .

4. Taste of Black Chicago.

5. Priest Named In Damning Pennsylvania Sexual Abuse Report Was Once Assigned to Chicago-Area Parishes.

"Father Raymond Lukac, who was one of the 'offenders identified by the grand jury' in the years-long report, served at St. Stanislaus Parish in Posen and taught at Bishop Noll Institute in Hammond.

"Those assignments came even after church authorities discovered Lukac had secretly married a teen parishioner who was pregnant, according to the report. Lukac had allegedly forged another pastor's name on the marriage certificate, then divorced her after she had given birth. He was sent "for treatment and repentance" and then reassigned out of state.

"Lukac was also assigned to parishes or Catholic Schools in New Mexico, Indiana, Illinois and West Virginia."
