The [Thursday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes / Posted on June 22, 2017

People! The party playlist is in pre-production. You will not want to miss this.

*

I sense at some point I will give my "I Have A Dream" speech. Some folks have heard it. I used to give it a few times a year from behind the Beachwood Inn pool table. It's only 10 seconds long, max. But boy is it beautiful.

*

Regular columns will resume next week. Too distracted this week.

*

But here's a short summary of what you're missing: The usual suspects are doing their usual cynical, corrupt thing. Also: Idiots are not being held accountable. What more do you need to know?

-

Minimum Wage Hikes Work
Seattle is the latest example; it's been studied for decades and the proof is incontrovertible. In other words, a fact!

*

When you look at Kansas as the latest example of conservative economics failing, you begin to see the truth emerge - again - about how to grow prosperity.

-

On Joe Louis, Race And How Society Treats Its Sports Heroes
Studying sports heroes in their context can offer insights into a nation, culture or society at the time - but the comparison with today's sports stars also reveals surprising continuities between the past and present.

-

Gauguin: Artist As Alchemist
"Gauguin became an artist after traveling the world as a merchant marine and working as a stockbroker's assistant. His unconventional artistic path made him uniquely open to exploring a wide range of materials, including wood, wax, and ceramics."

At the Art Institute.

Philando Castile Verdict A Painful Result Of Laws Rigged To Protect Cops.

*

Developers Literally Whitewashed Pilsen's Historic Latino Murals.

*

Pentagon Wasted $28 Million On Forest Camo Uniforms For Afghanistan Desert.

*

Felt Bodega Runs Out Of Fake Food.

*

Sears Canada Going Belly Up.

*

Imagining The Museum Of Science & Industry.

-

TweetWood
A sampling.

She's a United States senator.

*

*

It's congressional Republicans who are now unrestrained, not - and due to- the president.

*

*

We literally have a pathological liar as president. Incontrovertible.

*

*

We're working 'round the clock to get the answer and we're almost there!

*

Supporters: Fake news!
