1.) Mayor Emanuel recently returned from the Czech Republic, his third vacation this year. Based on Chicago’s booming job market and safer streets, I say Rahm's earned it. In fact, as with his other actions, City Hall estimates Rahm’s trips will add 800 new jobs and put dozens of cops on the street.
2.) I support the European anti-austerity protesters and all, but why dress so blandly? Two words of advice: Pastel Revolution.
3.) Memo to new Cubs prospect Jorge Soler: You spent your first 20 years in Communist Cuba and then defected… to the Cubs? Please assure us Fidel isn’t emptying his psych wards again.
4.) Hasn’t Brit-import Piers Morgan been a breath of fresh air on CNN? Sheer genius to replace Larry King’s live call-ins with phone hacks.
5.) Just learned the “Euro Zone” is not an English football term. (Makes me wonder if my Phoenix University degree is really worth the copy paper it’s printed on.)
