The Mincing Rascals are John Williams and Steve Bertrand of WGN Radio and Eric Zorn, Kristen McQueary and Scott Stantis of the Chicago Tribune. The Rascals debate possible reasons for why Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is not running for re-election. Then, they air out their feelings on Facebook’s compromising the data of 87 million people.

And, some are indifferent about the Chicago Tribune logo on the Tribune Tower.
