The [Wednesday] Papers

1. Assignment Desk, Activate: How They Really Got Rich.

Every one of these people should get the New York Times treatment.

Who's with me? Grant money? Publishing partners? I'm ready to work.

2. A History Of Police Violence In Chicago.

"At the turn of the century, Chicago police killed 307 people, one in 18 homicides in the city - three times the body count of local gangsters," historian Jeffrey S. Adler has found.

"African Americans made up 3 percent of Chicago's population and 21 percent of police homicide victims from 1910 to 1920."

3. Beer Bubble Bingo.

"Lagunitas Brewing Co. said Tuesday that it would cut 12 percent of its workforce, citing a retrenchment of the American craft beer market," the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports.

I guess it was time for the craft beer bubble to pop.

"The decision to downsize comes 17 months after Dutch brewing giant Heineken International acquired full ownership of the homegrown brewery company."

Ohhhhhhhh. I guess it was time for the corporate ownership bubble to pop.

"The workforce reduction will affect every department in the company, which operates a production plant in Chicago and a taproom in Seattle, CEO Maria Stipp said in a prepared statement."

Maria Tipp, you are Today's Worst Person With A Connection To Chicago.

4. Cicero And 372 Other Cities Growing Faster Than Chicago.

Rahm's job here is done.

5. Possessing Pilsen.

"After 34 years operating Chavez Jewelry in Pilsen, the family business will permanently close its doors at 1420 W. 18th St., the owner confirmed.

"Chavez, 67, said a shift in neighborhood's demographics has played a role in the closing. Since 2011, she has seen rents in the area continue to climb, while her mostly Latino clientele has dwindled."

"I love what I do, but the rents have become too high," Chavez said. "I can't afford it anymore."

Because affluent white people have decided to claim the neighborhood for their own. That's gentrification in a nutshell.
