Another casualty from yesterday's deadly fire: The mother of the two little boys who were killed in the fire also died this morning.

Dennis Quaid and his wife filed a suit against Chicago-based pharmaceutical giant Baxter International today saying the company was negligent by marking different strengths of medicine in too similar packages. (It appears Baxter has relabeled the products in question.) Quaid's infant twins were accidentally given the blood thinner that was 10,000 units per milliliter instead of 10 units.

The new superintendent of police is going to make $300,000 a year. Jeebus. Mayor Daley also appointed two new members to his cabinet today: Ellen Sahli is the new commissioner of housing, and Scott Bruner heading up the Department of Administrative Hearings. Christ, that sounds boring.

Tomorrow's the final day for the Jays factory on 99th Street.

Another great B&W shot, this one by JVoves
