    Tuesday Jan 27 | Chicago Reader

    Years ago, when I went to work for UPI in Saint Louis, my in-service training consisted of a demonstration of how to operate the teleprinter. Most of the time an operator would be available; but on Sundays, and also on Saturday and Monday nights, it was up to me to do everything myself.

    Tuesday Jan 27 | Chicago Reader

    Catching up with Blackhat over the weekend, I found myself reminded-and surprisingly often-of selections in this year's Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival, which I previewed for this week's issue of the Reader . Michael Mann's latest is, on one level, a catalogue of textures that can be achieved with digital video.

    Tuesday Jan 27 | Chicago Reader

    Pedro and Margarito Flores were at the height of their business, moving as much as 2,000 kilos of coke and additional quantities of heroin through Chicago each month, when they decided to start cooperating with the feds in 2008. Over the next seven years, their assistance helped authorities investigate the highest levels of the Sinaloa Cartel; record its leader, Joaquin Guzman Loera, known as "El Chapo" , conducting international drug transactions; and indict dozens of alleged cartel leaders and business associates.

    Nov 5, 2013 | Chicago Reader

    As if it weren't bad enough that President Obama felt compelled to saddle us with Mayor Rahm Emanuel in 2011, he's doubled down and endorsed him for a second term. I suppose I should be grateful that the president has for the moment limited his endorsement to a radio spot instead of cutting a TV commercial or making a joint appearance at a thunderous campaign rally.

  14. Donut Fest 2015: An epic tale of doughnuts and survivalRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jan 27 | Chicago Reader

    Donut Fest seemed like such a great idea when I volunteered to go-the prospect of spending a cold Sunday morning eating doughnuts and drinking coffee sounded like heaven! Well, what would make it even more heavenly would be to eat the doughnuts and drink the coffee in bed, bundled up in pajamas, instead of having to get dressed and go to Chop Shop in Wicker Park. But nobody was offering to run and fetch the doughnuts and coffee for me, so a trek through a cold, wet snow shower to Chop Shop it was.
