Re: “J.B. Pritzker's ‘African-American Thing’

Mark Konkol out as Chicago Reader editor after one published Issue - The Chicago Reader has some credibility back, but the damage done by the one Issue will not be forgotten.

Re: “Thank You for Your Service should have played it by the book

Peter byrne. You're a moron. The movie is only based on a soldiers difficulty transitioning to civilian life from the military. That is something you know nothing about. I do. You putting your beliefs and politics into a movie that had me in tears is nothing short of being arrogant and ignorant all at the same time. If you ever want to show how much of a fake American you are when you are about to thank someone for their service, keep that hole in your face shut. We can tell those who are sincere and those who are fake.

Re: “Black Panther

There was not a single kill white motif in the movie. If you feel that way then you view white people as oppressive. Good bye.

Re: “The transportation change we seek around the Obama Presidential Center

The new roads should be underbuilt not over built. Adding buses is not a bad way to go because they can always be reduced if the ridership doesn't merit it. The garage is too big and that's another waste of money. Tourists will likely rideshare.

Re: “Black Panther

Identity politics ah another signal were about to hear about something or someones relationship to white frailty, insecurity and a growing sense of impotence and irrelevance. Much like the presence of nonwhites on the block is a sign of genocide to these weak minds, any form of media that does not reinforce white supremacy and its viewpoint is a threat. So conversely films starring whites are identity politics as well, you just arent bothered by it. Dont worry, you win even when you think youve lost.

Re: “Statement from Sun-Times Media CEO on change in Chicago Reader leadership

" IAC, you want a Reader that's Fair and Balanced, right?"

I have no problem whatsoever if the Reader continues to be a left-wing publication, even though I'm not left wing on most issues. But it should be fact-based left-wing journalism and not just angry rants that have little basis in reality or that act as if the other side of the issue is not even worth having their views considered and rejected rather than skipping the first step. Looking thoroughly at an issue and coming up with a left wing perspective, even when I disagree with it, is very different than simply ranting about how the powers-that-be and others don't share your viewpoint. The former was what was expected in the Reader six or seven years ago and earlier. There's still some of it now but far more it is just the latter.

Re: “42 Grams and the weight of culinary greatness

Watched most of it last night on Netflix, will watch the last 20 minutes or so tonight. I also didn't care for the way Jake treated his sous chef, although to be fair that man was one of the most self-effacing people I have ever heard of. I mean, who works somewhere for a year with no paycheck & tells that to the owner of the restaurant he goes to work at next? Abuse victim much?

Jake may be an excellent chef but he only tells the ingredients he uses; doesn't describe his technique; doesn't let anyone else do any of the cooking. Screams the "F" word constantly & if I pay $200+ for a meal, I do not want to listen to that.

Re: “Statement from Sun-Times Media CEO on change in Chicago Reader leadership

There's still hope for the Reader to regain its soul after this move.

----

The Liz Armstrong days followed by the Creative Loafing days really dumbed the paper down.

But they were never a newspaper, and that seems to be what Konk was shooting for, when he shot himself in the foot.

Wish they'd go back to the long-form stuff, interspersed with the short, oddball art and culture stuff.

Re: “J.B. Pritzker's ‘African-American Thing’

I didn't read the Steinberg piece, but Emil Jones was in the back pocket of Com Ed for years. I hate the guy every time my electrical rates go up -- Axelrod too.

If Konkol spent any time in the Sun Times archives, he would have found this:

Re: “42 Grams and the weight of culinary greatness

There seems to be a lot more to this story than the documentary, or news about 42 Grams, has reported. After watching, I was curious, and started reading more. Alexa's twitter bio pretty clearly labels herself as a domestic abuse survivor, and while I'm in no way trying to perpetuate rumors, the doc didn't seem to suggest that type of statement relates to a prior relationship.

The doc not-so-vaguely hinted at some very deep strains on the relationship, and in this day and age when the #metoo light is being shined on the restaurant industry, it would be nice to know if there's more to the story here.
