* John Kass discusses the mythology of Obama and Fred Thompson, with a weird, fascinating aside on a period when Chicago drinkers fetishized Coors beer.

* The NYT weighs in on Obama/Rezko; Steve Rhodes weighs in on the NYT article (h/t Gapers Block).

* Obama's general counsel: if Scooter Libby gets pardoned, that would be just super.

* The Sun-Times has the skeleton of a good profile about Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, who happens to be Danny Solis's sister. The Tribune's profile has lots of boilerplate quotes but omits all the interesting personal tidbits.

* Chicago's priciest things, places, and people

* The Chicago Journal profiles Chicago rapper Sharkula (whom Bob Mehr profiled in the Meter three years ago). He has a Web site but pretty clearly needs a MySpace page.

* Question: Why does the Sun-Times's Web site bury its columnists? Not to mention its staff editorials.
