Pioneer Press got with the seminarian-crash story.  Finally.  It adds to what’s been said, raising the question whether charges would be filed against the pizzeria, Emil’s, on Route 176 in Mundelein, for over-serving the driver. More:

Neither of the deceased were wearing seat belts. Both were outside the car by the time help arrived, but it is unclear to what degree, if any, the young men had been moved.

Rowlands did not present himself as a police officer; the impersonating charge is based on the badges that were found.

All calls by Pioneer Press to St. Mary’s were referred to the Chicago Archdiocese.

Rowlands is due back in court in Waukegan on Oct. 4, Spaulding on Oct. 19.

Why Geffen could never partner with Tribune to own LAT

Los Angeles Times
David Geffen, who wants to own the Los Angeles Times, has reportedly said he’d be happy with modest profits. “This means there’s no way he could ever be a joint owner with the Tribune Co., because a statement like that at a board meeting could land him at the bottom of Lake Michigan,” writes Steve Lopez. “Those of us who work here are split as to whether we’d prefer local ownership by an ego-driven private wannabe who doesn’t know what he’s doing, or corporate geniuses based somewhere in the Midwest.”

Milstein talks

“He does that a lot,” OP village president Pope told a person addressing the village board, meaning “Don’t mind him.”  This was trustee Robert Milstein, who was taking forever, with multiple asides, to ask his question.

Brian, are you grieving?

 
Los Angeles Times
NBC anchor Brian Williams says reporting Hurricane Katrina has moved him to consider other areas of coverage that he says need to be addressed. He tells Matea Gold: “I will be asking my network to lead a discussion on the issues of class, race, energy, the environment, disaster planning, Iraq — all those things and more. This encompasses so many of the major issues of our time.” (Related AP story.)
— from Pointeronline’s Jim Romenesko letter. 
 
B. Williams has discovered the other America.  He doesn’t ride the subway enough maybe?  In and out of limos, is he, with barely time to tip the driver?  He does one story and has ideas for entire coverage for his bosses, stem to stern.  Well (a) it won’t sell, because people won’t want to hear his moanings and groanings and (b) his list is all left-wing: nothing about the state of marriage in the U.S., especially among blacks, and its ravages; the decline of literacy coast to coast, especially among blacks; the increased sense of dependence on government as opposed to personal responsibility, especially among blacks.  He’s got the same old tired subjects and you know where he will get his coverage playbook when the time comes.  What a jerk.

Chi Trib uber Sun-Times, big

Sun-Times gave the fatal Mundelein seminarian drunk-driving crash story page-God-knows-where Metro Briefs treatment on Sunday, but Chi Trib has been all over it, moving it along almost daily.  Today, five days into it, the Trib has breakthrough info that the seminarian car owner has an “Ohio rap sheet” in a 2001 corruption case, which was news to church authorities.  This blog’s brother, The Churches, has extended coverage of news and web accounts.

More: The Mundelein Review, a Pioneer Press paper and owned by the Sun-Times owner, has nothing on the crash that can be found on the web.  Nor does any other Pioneer paper.  I don’t get it.
