CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— ALL OF THE FRONT PAGE: Epstein and his neighbors near Wrigley hire private security – Andy Grimm  (DIERSEN: As crime increases under the Democrats who run America, under the Democrats who run Illinois, under the Democrats who run Cook County, and under the Democrats who run Chicago, how soon will you chip in to hire private security to patrol your precinct, your municipality, your township/ward, and your county?)
http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/theo-epstein-and-his-neighbors-near-wrigley-hire-private-security/
(FRON THE ARTICLE: With crime surging citywide, residents in one of Chicago’s wealthiest neighborhoods are chipping in to hire private security guards to patrol their 16-square-block section of Lake View a half-mile west of Wrigley Field. Among those donating to the cause: Cubs President Theo Epstein and his wife. The Epsteins are among “dozens” of families who have contributed to the Southport Community Alliance, a not-for-profit group formed in June to pay for patrols of homes bounded by West Grace Street, West Roscoe Street, and Southport and Ashland avenues. Marie Whitney, Epstein’s wife, is one of three directors of the organization, according to state records. Besides a rise in burglaries and robberies in their neighborhood, the Epsteins understandably have other concerns about safety.)
— CPS pink slips another 249 staffers, blaming enrollment plunge – Lauren FitzPatrick  (DIERSEN: I worked for GAO 1980-1997. I should write a book about the thousands of older non-veteran White male GAO employees who had their careers wasted and/or who were forced to retire as the agency downsized 1980-1997.)
