The [Monday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes / Posted on August 3, 2015

Coming soon:

* The Weekend In Chicago Rock.

Including Lollapalooza highlights.

* The Cub Factor.

I'm pinch-hitting today for Marty Gangler, who is on a double-secret national security mission.

* The Beachwood Radio Hour #64.

News, sports, rock 'n' roll.


From the weekend:

* The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour #62: Neither A Buyer Nor A Seller Be.

Our man on the White Sox, Roger Wallenstein, joined me and Jim "Coach" Coffman on Saturday morning to talk post-trade deadline Cubs and Sox.

Plus: The Starlin Castro Saga; Len Kasper, Company Man; Bill Veeck, TV Bartender; The Journesia Of Training Camp Narratives; The Chicago Fire Continue To Disgust Us; and Eleane Delle Donne Emerges As The Face Of The WNBA.

* The Sad & Suspicious Return Of American Pharoah.

Monmouth's mad money. In our very own Tom Chambers' TrackNotes.


From today:

* The White Sox Report: If Only We Had Billy Pierce.

Damn Yankees.


* Morgenson: Signature Obama Program Drowning Homeowners.

The program has allowed big banks to run roughshod over borrowers again and again.

* Garfield Park Artists Lose All In Extra-Alarm Fire.

Three artists and a sound engineer lost almost everything in a fire in the Garfield Park studio and residential space they started nine years ago.

* Rachel Maddow Continues To Be Deeply Dishonest.

Does her "campaign coverage" ever make any real sense?

* Rahm Keeps Us Waiting For An Overdue TIF Report.

The annual TIF reports will tell us, among other things, how much the mayor has stashed away in the bank accounts for each TIF district. It's information teachers, parents, and activists want to get at it to refute his claim that there's no money for Chicago schools. You can see why the mayor's in no hurry to release it.

* Reagan Judge Reveals Truth About American Criminal Justice System.

Much of the so-called wisdom that has been handed down to us about the workings of the legal system, and the criminal process in particular, has been undermined by experience, legal scholarship and common sense.

* Wealth Doesn't Trickle Down - It Just Floods Offshore, Research Shows.

A staggering $21 trillion has been lost to global tax havens.


A sampling.
