Quick Hits

Just a few stories:
  • A Christmas Story - LIVE! - In a scene straight out of the movie "A Christmas Story," a 10-year-old Hammond boy got his tongue stuck to a metal light pole.

    Police say the unidentified fourth-grader was able to tell them that a friend dared him to lick the pole Wednesday night. Temperatures in Hammond were around 10 degrees at the time.

    By the time an ambulance arrived, the boy was able to yank his tongue off the frozen pole.

  • Thanks for taking the spotlight CFD - A Chicago firefighter has been charged with stealing gas meters from vacant houses and reselling them, officials said this morning.

    Firefighter Milton Stewart, an eight-year department veteran, has been placed on administrative leave, Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said. The department is conducting its own investigation, which could lead to Stewart's termination, he added.

    Stewart, 38, of the 1600 block of East 85th Street was charged with one count of official misconduct, one count of forgery by altering a document and one count of wire fraud, Police Officer Amina Greer said. The wire fraud charge was related to Stewart's alleged use of a fax machine.

  • There's a lawyer joke here somewhere - A criminal defense attorney was arrested and charged with smuggling marijuana to inmates in the Cook County Criminal Courts Building, authorities said today.

    Dave Compton, 61, a lawyer since 1991, was arrested Wednesday after he delivered 30 grams of marijuana to an undercover sheriff's employee posing as an inmate, Cook County Assistant State's Atty. Russ Baker said.

UPDATE: Spelling error corrected. Oops.

It's kinda the same story with our 50 Aldercreatures and Daley. Only it's their tongues up his ass and temperature isn't a factor.

Another clout-heavy Irish Firefighter disappoints his Chinaman! For Shame! Countless weekends spent away from the wife and kids to ring doorbells around election time. Hundreds of dollars spent on dinners and fundraisers. Untold instances of morally- challenging circumstances to suck-up to the shot-caller(s) at the Ward office. At least one thing's consistent - those Irish never let ya down in the scandal department!

Stewart is actual a Scottish name and I'm pretty sure if he lives at 1600 EAST 85th Street, he's probably African-American.

Get a clue, blue!

Milton Stewart? Irish? I doubt that. The name Stewart is a popular Scottish given name and surname.

It's close, but a different island, dumas.

GO FUCK YOURSELF ASSHOLE!!!
You illegitimate spawn of a West Side Ho! You don't know shit!
The geography alone should tell you that this jagoff was not Irish.
In addition, the surname, while ancestrally Scottish, is only indicative of the past tense possesive case, of which you know nothing, because you are a fucking idiot.
Take your Holiday on Monday & shut the fuck up, goof! And may your house burn down on Tuesday!
FUCK YOU!!!!

FYI people the reason he used a stolen meter is because you just cant put a meter spread in between the meter if it is removed, there are pressure regulators in the meters, this guy put a bypass in his gas line with the stolen meters a regulator and probably just turned valves on and off during the night so he was only billed when his legal meter was in use

HEY SCC:

While I enjoy reading (and contributing to) your blog for the myriad of insights, the contractual updates, the real-time, finger-on-the-pulse issues discussed, and the brilliant comedic contributions by both SCC and a good number of site visitors, what I enjoy the absolute most is the fact that there's an over-abundance of simpletons BEGGING to have their chains yanked due to their obvious lack of intelligence and/or an inability to digest sarcasm.

And while I'd never wish that someone's "house burn down on Tuesday", (well, maybe just a FEW people...) I will tell this poster (who's obviously a fireman) that the same psychological triad of predictive factors that applies to the majority of mass murderers/child molesters also manifests itself in a good percentage of firemen. Good luck with your inherent, debilitating disease, Fireboy.

This attorney is not a public defender. This attorney is like attorneys Jeffery Luckett or Jay Grodner...a piece of shit I don't want tarnishing my profession. A Dishonest piece of shit who makes the majority of good lawyers look bad.

It is sad when a cop, lawyer, judge or firefighter cloaked with public trust does this crap.

You, my dear friend, sound like a scrupulous and ethical attorney.
Would you be willing to sue an unscrupulous and unethical lieutenant (medical abuser) who spent his career fucking over police officers?
