* Chicago: the city's that's too corrupt for casinos.

* Wait, what?

"[Chicago] may be the only city in the world where architecture ranks as a sport.

"Bleachers are erected around construction sites so the locals can sit and watch cranes swing steel beams into place."

* The city of Chicago: on the forefront of foreclosures and rising taxes.

* Lede of the week: "The Davinci Robot is like a giant metal bug -- an alien piercing Eric Hedberg's chest again and again."

* Dennis Hastert: really, really done with being a politician.
