The [Wednesday] Papers

"A party official said that a banner, a flag and signs promoting President Donald Trump were stolen overnight from the Republican Party of Illinois' tent at the Illinois State Fair," the Springfield State Journal-Register reports.

"It's unfortunate that political decorum has kind of fallen this low," Illinois GOP executive director Anthony Sarros said.

Yes, political decorum has fallen really low when a banner and signs promoting a president who has called Mexican immigrants racist, installed a Muslim travel ban, retweets white nationalists, tells congresswomen of color to back to their "home" countries, both-sides a neo-Nazi rally where a white supremacist killed one of the good guys, and puts children in cages are stolen.

Shame on the sign-stealers. There's just no room for that in America.

The difference is that Sarah Sanders was a public employee who lied daily in the service of a white nationalist administration while Chris Cuomo is a reporter - and one who's employer has been falsely vilified by a violence-inciting president. I mean, there are other flaws with this tweet, but that's the main one.

I know it would be somewhat controversial, but I really think a Chipotle would do well in Pilsen and I'm surprised there isn't one there yet. from r/chicago
