1. The Architecture Of Segregation.

"Fifty years after the creation of the Department of Housing and Urban Development - and nearly that long after the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968 - the fight against the interlinked scourges of housing discrimination and racial segregation in America is far from finished. Economic isolation is actually growing worse across the country, as more and more minority families find themselves trapped in high-poverty neighborhoods without decent housing, schools or jobs, and with few avenues of escape.

"This did not happen by accident."

2. Civil Rights Group Backed By Telecom Industry Seeks To Block Net Neutrality, Instantly Contradicts Itself.

You know who that group is in love with? Bobby Rush (D-AT&T).

3. Israel's Funniest Palestinian Writer Decamps To The Midwest.

"Before I visited Kashua in Champaign, where he recently extended his contract with the University of Illinois for three more years, he warned me, 'It's one of the most boring places you'll ever go to.'"

4. Troublemakers: Chicago Freedom Struggles Through The Lens Of Art Shay.

"With this exhibit, we hope to get people thinking about who the troublemakers really are when people take to the streets for peace, economic justice and democracy."

Infield, outfield, starting pitching, relief pitching. Plus: I Hate John Fox; The Secret Seven-TE Spread; Fangio's Folly; Rappin' Roger Goodell; Rah! Rah! Sis-Boom-Bah Humbug; and The White Sox, Fire And Sky Reportedly Did Things This Week.
