Ukrainians and Poles in Chicago reflect on the days of war – Chicago Tribune

Good morning, Chicago.

Kyle Rittenhouse was justified charged in the Kenosha murder a year ago, but that hasn’t stopped him from calling him a murderer dozens of times a day on social media.

The former Antioch resident has vowed to sue celebrities and media figures who used such language to describe him, but his attorney, Todd McMurtry, told the Tribune that the broader goal — change the discourse about Rittenhouse.

“That’s the whole point of a lot of the lawsuits I’m involved in, to reduce people’s online behavior,” said McMurtry, who specializes in high-profile defamation lawsuits. “When you start making provably false statements, you’ve crossed the line.”

It promises to add a new chapter to the still-intense battle to define Rittenhouse’s image after a trial that captured the world’s attention.

Parishioners of St. Sabina’s Church gathered outside the headquarters of the Archdiocese of Chicago on Thursday, holding placards made by schoolchildren demanding that Rev. Michael Pfleger be returned “home” — even if investigation of a sexual assault claim against him continues.

“We want him to be with us, in his parish, for the holidays,” said Pamela Bosley, founder of Pain Over Purpose, an organization made up of parents who have lost children to gun violence under Pfleger’s leadership.

In the biggest flurry of rockets, Russia attacked Ukraine’s energy system A Tuesday that plunges the country into darkness as winter approaches. For Ukrainians scattered around the world and in Chicago, it means even more limited communication with relatives they left and who experienced periods of lack of heat and electricity.

“(Communication) has been a huge problem, there’s no doubt about that,” said Paulo Bandrivskyi, who is vice president of the Illinois chapter of the Ukrainian Congressional Committee. “With power outages and intermittent cellular access, it’s become very, very difficult.”

Ralph Fiennes in "Menu."

Director Marc Maillot’s The Menu is a premise invented by screenwriters Seth Rice and Will Tracy (“Continuity”): Twelve people, paying $1,250 apiece, travel to a 12-acre private island. There, the famously secluded, sophisticated establishment beckons, punishes, delights and, soon enough, terrifies visitors who have paid dearly for the experience.

“The Menu” refers to series about bad behavior like “eating a lot but enjoying bad behavior”.Continuity” or “White Lotus.” It takes the awfulness of the privileged as a matter of course, and for entertainment, mainly to tap into viewers’ easy revenge instincts. Part “Seven,” part haute cuisine “Saw,” part reality cooking show, director Maillad’s film is finally unsure how far to push its swagger. It helps to have Fiennes in the kitchen and a Nordic smokehouse in the back, though.

Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon looks on from the dugout before the start of the game against the Atlanta Braves at Wrigley Field in Chicago on July 7, 2016.

Joe Maddon came to town eight years ago with an audacious plan to turn around a franchise synonymous with losing. He told reporters to be ready for some “crazies” during a raucous 40-minute news conference at the Cubby Bear, then offered to buy everyone a shot and a beer “Hazelton (Pennsylvania) style.”

Returning to Chicago this week to promote his new book, The Joe Book: Trying to Keep Baseball and Life in Mind, left the usually loquacious Maddon on at a loss for words.
