Should you toss dog poop in a neighbor’s garbage can? Social media gets talked about as if it were one thing. But “media” is plural, and each social medium has different customs and tone. Facebook is familial, for instance. You can show unruly guests the gate. On Facebook I mark personal occasions: my wife’s birthday, a son home from school, in a way I never would on Twitter. Twitter is far more public and contentious, a mad free-for-all, like that tomato festival in a small Italian town where everyone is covered in red goo, flinging fruit as fast they can. Then there’s blogging. I maintain a blog whose name, alas, can’t be printed in the paper. Blogging seemed edgy when I began, six years ago, ignoring the unavoidable truth that, if I’m doing something, then it ain’t edgy. Now blogging seems a quaint and obscure time-wasting pastime, like embroidery. A place for smaller, more trivial thoughts that have no business gobbling up the scarce real estate of a printed newspaper. Two weeks ago, one blog post began this way: “Tuesday is garbage day in the old leafy suburban paradise. Which makes Tuesday a better day to walk the dog, because people roll their big sturdy green garbage cans to the curb, affording me a range of disposal options after Kitty has done her business. No need for carrying the blue New York Times bag with its load of doo, not for long, not on Tuesdays. Detour a few steps over to a can, a tad guiltily, lift the top and flip the bag inside. “I don’t know why I feel guilty—it isn’t as if the homeowner will mind, me using their can for such a purpose. Or maybe they would. Of course they would. We can be very jealous of our prerogatives, we suburbanites, and I can imagine some homemaker gazing worriedly out her window. ‘That disheveled man, the one with the limp who is always walking that ratty little dog. He just came by and used our garbage can!’” This was meant as a joke. Turns out I bumbled into an ongoing national controversy, the summertime version of the dibs debate that breaks out every winter. Comments focused on the morality of tossing dog waste into strangers’ trash cans. Some disapprove: “It simmers in the summer and festers in the fall—and really stinks up the can. I move my cans closer to the back porch in the snowy months... My driveway is short, so it’s easy for passersby to deposit the poop in my trash can.” The legality of disposing your garbage in somebody else’s bin is a murky area, though laws seem designed to prevent bulk disposal rather than thwart throwing away a plastic bag containing a small but significant load. My pal at the Washington Post, Gene Weingarten, whose Twitter profile is the pile of poo emoji, and identifies him as an “enthusiast of excreta-related humor” ran a Twitter poll on this very notion last month. He asked, “Is it rude/unacceptable to put your dog’s poopy, in a sealed plastic bag, into someone else’s trash container that is going to be picked up the same day?” I myself would not use the word “poopy” unless speaking to a 2-year-old. But Gene has two Pulitzer Prizes, so who am I to question his word choice? Of 568 respondents to his poll, 17 percent said “Yes it is quite rude;” 34 percent said “It’s a little rude.” And 49 percent—almost half, for Trump supporters—agree with me that “It’s not rude.” That’s a relief. The caveat that the deed must be done before the cans are emptied seems flexible. If somebody leaves their can out after garbage collection day, well, I would argue this makes the can fair game, from an ethical point of view, a public utility, punishment for their failure to follow social norms. You see the kind of things we think about in the suburbs? Believe me, I know, with a new mayor sworn in Monday, this is not the most pressing Chicago concern. In the city, few care what goes into a dumpster in the alley, so long as it’s not a baby. But outside the city, we monitor each other. What else is there to do? In passing this controversy along, I hope I am doing my part to keep Chicagoans from fleeing the city.

The officer saw Demarco McCranie, 53, weaving in and out of traffic in a gray 2007 Mercury about 12:40 a.m. on Harlem Avenue near Addison Road. A man facing a DUI charge in west suburban Riverside allegedly refused to get off his cellphone when an officer pulled him over Saturday. The officer saw Demarco McCranie, 53, weaving in and out of traffic in a gray 2007 Mercury about 12:40 a.m. on Harlem Avenue near Addison Road, according to a statement from Riverside Police Chief Tom Weitzel. When the officer turned on his squad car’s lights and siren, McCranie kept driving and talking on his cellphone, police said. The officer pulled alongside him, honked the squad car’s horn and used the car’s loud speaker to tell McCranie to pull over before the Mercury finally stopped in the 3600 block of South Harlem. Riverside police Demarco McCranieMcCranie refused to get off his phone during the traffic stop and field sobriety testing, Weitzel said. A breath test showed his blood alcohol content at 0.18, more than twice the legal limit. He was arrested and charged with drunk driving, speeding, illegal lane usage, unlawful use of a cellphone while driving and other traffic offenses, Weitzel said. As he was being processed, McCranie became combative, pulled out his dentures and kicked them across the booking room floor, Weitzel said. He was released on a personal recognizance bond and his next court date was set for July 5. Read more on crime, and track the city’s homicides.

Students at Oak Park and River Forest High School should get their books in three or four weeks. Oak Park and River Forest High School will reprint its 2018-19 yearbook because some photos show students making a hand gesture sometimes associated with white nationalism, the district’s board of education decided Monday night. Reprinting 1,750 copies of “Tabula” will cost $53,794. The upside-down “OK” appeared in 18 photographs of clubs or teams and was made by students of “various races, ethnicities, genders and grades,” said Supt. Joylynn Pruitt-Adams, offering new details about the controversy in an email to parents, students and staff Monday night after the board’s vote. “The photos in question, as well as other club/team photos in which students are striking poses and making gestures, will be replaced with straight-forward group shots,” Pruitt-Adams wrote. “While putting stickers over the photos would be a cheaper solution, it would draw attention to particular groups of students and place a cloud of suspicion over all the students in those photos, regardless of whether they used the sign or not,” she said. Board member Matt Baron voted against reprinting the yearbooks. He gave his reasoning in a Facebook post Monday night: “One of my biggest concerns: that if we toss out these 1,750 Tabulas, rather than come to the thoughtful conclusion that they should still be distributed, we are playing right into the hands of all the haters whose evil is at the root of this corrosive and divisive angst — and worse — that we are experiencing.” The photographs were discovered last week, when the yearbooks arrived on campus from the printer, school officials have said. Although the hand gesture has sometimes been used in the popular “circle game,” it has more recently become associated with the white nationalist movement. School officials said last week that they had not yet spoken to the students who made the hand gestures and could not talk about any possible punishments. And Monday’s email offered little clarification. “Those pages were reviewed and shipped to the printer in early December, before the gesture was widely known to have any association with white nationalism,” Pruitt-Adams said. “I want to be clear that we are not making any presumptions about students’ intent in using the gesture.” It’s expected to take three or four weeks to reprint the yearbooks, Pruitt-Adams said. In the meantime, students will be given an eight-page blank section for signatures that they can then glue into their yearbooks. Seniors are set to finish school Friday, with freshman, sophomores and juniors at school through May 30, administrators said. Earlier this evening, the District 200 School Board voted 4-2 to approve a $54,000 contract with Jostens for a revised...Posted by Matt Baron-District 200 Oak Park & River Forest High School Board Member on Monday, May 20, 2019

Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen paid tribute to Lauda as “an idol and an ambitious fighter who never gave up.” BERLIN — Formula One great Niki Lauda, who won two of his world titles after a horrific crash that left him with serious burns and went on to become a prominent figure in the aviation industry, has died. He was 70. Lauda’s family issued a statement saying the three-time world champion “passed away peacefully” on Monday, the Austria Press Agency reported. Walter Klepetko, a doctor who performed a lung transplant on Lauda last year, said Tuesday: “Niki Lauda has died. I have to confirm that.” ”His unique successes as a sportsman and entrepreneur are and remain unforgettable,” the family statement said. “His tireless drive, his straightforwardness and his courage remain an example and standard for us all. Away from the public gaze he was a loving and caring husband, father and grandfather. We will miss him very much.” Lauda won the F1 drivers’ championship in 1975 and 1977 with Ferrari and again in 1984 with McLaren. In 1976, he was badly burned when he crashed during the German Grand Prix, but he made an astonishingly fast return to racing just six weeks later. Lauda remained closely involved with the F1 circuit after retiring as a driver in 1985, and in recent years served as the non-executive chairman of the Mercedes team. Formula One posted a message from its official Twitter account to acknowledge Lauda’s contribution to the sport. ”Rest in peace Niki Lauda. Forever carried in our hearts, forever immortalized in our history,” the post said. “The motorsport community today mourns the devastating loss of a true legend.” Born on Feb. 22, 1949 into a wealthy Vienna family, Nikolaus Andreas Lauda was expected to follow his father into the paper-manufacturing industry, but instead concentrated his business talents and determination on his dreams of becoming a racing driver. Rest in peace Niki Lauda. Forever carried in our hearts, forever immortalised in our history. The motorsport community today mourns the devastating loss of a true legend.The thoughts of everyone at F1 are with his friends and family.— Formula 1 (@F1) May 21, 2019 Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said “Niki, we will miss you.” ”The whole country and the motor sports world are mourning a really great Austrian,” Kurz wrote on Twitter. Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen paid tribute to Lauda as “an idol and an ambitious fighter who never gave up.” Lauda financed his early career with the help of a string of loans, working his way through the ranks of Formula 3 and Formula 2. He made his Formula 1 debut for the March team at the 1971 Austrian Grand Prix and picked up his first points in 1973 with a fifth-place finish for BRM in Belgium. Lauda joined Ferrari in ‘74, winning a Grand Prix for the first time that year in Spain. He won his first drivers’ title with five victories the following season. Facing tough competition from McLaren’s James Hunt — their rivalry featured in the Ron Howard-directed movie Rush — Lauda appeared on course to defend his title in 1976 when he crashed at the Nuerburgring during the German Grand Prix. Several drivers stopped to help pull him from the burning car, but the accident would scar him for life. The baseball cap Lauda almost always wore in public became a personal trademark. ”The main damage, I think to myself, was lung damage from inhaling all the flames and fumes while I was sitting in the car for about 50 seconds,” he recalled nearly a decade later. “It was something like 800 degrees.” Lauda fell into a coma for a time. He said that “for three or four days it was touch and go.” ”Then my lungs recovered and I got my skin grafts done, then basically there was nothing left,” he added. “I was really lucky in a way that I didn’t do any (other) damage to myself. So the real question was then will I be able to drive again, because certainly it was not easy to come back after a race like that.” Lauda made his comeback just six weeks after the crash, finishing fourth at Monza after overcoming his initial fears. He recalled “shaking with fear” as he changed into second gear on the first day of practice and thinking, “I can’t drive.” The next day, Lauda said he “started very slowly trying to get all the feelings back, especially the confidence that I’m capable of driving these cars again.” The result, he said, boosted his confidence and after four or five races “I had basically overcome the problem of having an accident and everything went back to normal.” He won his second championship in 1977 before switching to Brabham and then retiring in 1979 to concentrate on setting up his airline, Lauda Air, declaring that he “didn’t want to drive around in circles anymore.” Lauda came out of retirement in 1982 after a big-money offer from McLaren, reportedly about $3 million a year. He finished fifth his first year back and 10th in 1983, but came back to win five races and edge teammate Alain Prost for his third title in 1984. He retired for good the following year, saying he needed more time to devote to his airline business. Initially a charter airline, Lauda Air expanded in the 1980s to offer flights to Asia and Australia. In May 1991, a Lauda Air Boeing 767 crashed in Thailand after one of its engine thrust reversers accidentally deployed during a climb, killing all 213 passengers and 10 crew. In 1997, longtime rival Austrian Airlines took a minority stake and in 2000, with the company making losses, Lauda resigned as board chairman after an external audit criticized a lack of internal financial control over business conducted in foreign currency. Austrian Airlines later took full control. Lauda founded a new airline, Niki, in 2003. Germany’s Air Berlin took a minority stake and later full control of that airline, which Lauda bought back in early 2018. He partnered with budget carrier Ryanair on Niki’s successor, LaudaMotion. Lauda in later years formed a close bond with Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, who joined the team in 2013. He often backed Hamilton in public and provided advice and counsel to the British driver. Lauda also intervened as a Mercedes mediator when Hamilton and his former Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg feuded, argued and traded barbs as they fought for the title between 2014-16 Lauda twice underwent kidney transplants, receiving an organ donated by his brother in 1997 and, when that stopped functioning well, a kidney donated by his girlfriend in 2005. In August 2018, he underwent a lung transplant that the Vienna General Hospital said was made necessary by a “serious lung illness.” It didn’t give details. Lauda is survived by his second wife, Birgit, and their twin children Max and Mia. He had two adult sons, Lukas and Mathias, from his first marriage.
