* A reminder that police are heroes

Officer Taylor was 39. He had been on the force 14 years. He was, we are told, studious and ambitious, and he loved being a cop. He leaves behind a wife and young daughter.

Ask any cop and he or she will tell you — Officer Taylor’s widow and daughter are now family for life to the entire Chicago Police Department, kept close to the heart behind every badge. They will be welcomed to every police picnic, embraced at every police ceremony.

But, as they would be the first to add, it will never be enough.

All the kind words and all the warm embraces can never make up for the loss of one living husband, one living father.

And Chicago can never say thank you enough.

* SPECIAL REPORT: Editors/Reporters Respond to Tribune Cuts

While the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune have earned the headlines in the Tribune shakeup, it’s the company’s other dailies, like The Morning Call in Allentown, Pa., and Florida’s Orlando Sentinel and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale, that are feeling some of the most significant effects.

* Wrigleyville bars agree to stop serving alcohol after 7th inning

Tunney noted that the Daley administration initially wanted the seventh-inning cutoff to apply to all playoff games, not just potential title clinchers. They also wanted to implement it without notice when the Cubs clinched the Central Division championship.

“At the beginning, they didn’t want to do anything [to compromise. But], we listened. We’re all interested in the same goal,” he said.

    The national guard call up story makes you feel guilty about worrying your 401K hit yesterday and the fate of the White Sox.

    Afghanistan is one tough neighborhood. Most of the place looks like the dark side of the moon. They’ve chewed up and spit out every invader from the Persians to the Greeks to the Mongols to the Arabs to the Brits to the Soviets. That’s what they do.

    Should we be hopeful that Rich may stop his censorship of positive Cubs articles since he allowed Kevin to put a related article in Morning Shorts about the bars near Wrigley??…probably not…but Obama has taught us to keep hope alive.


  3. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Sep 30, 08 @ 10:13 am:

    Z, it ain’t censorship. I ain’t the government. It’s called editing.


  4. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Sep 30, 08 @ 5:31 pm:

    well said, word.

    It’s also beyond AA’s comprehension that the people of Chicago will let Daley get away with another billion dollar cash grab while police officers are dying in the streets over and over on his watch.
