The [Memorial Day 2016] Weekend Desk Report

By Steve Rhodes / Posted on May 28, 2016

1. Coke Joins Brands Trying To Out-America Each Other With Packaging.

Nobody is beating Trump at this game, though.

2. Facebook To Serve Ads To Non-Users Through Its Audience Network.

I'm getting one now - on my Coke can.

3. How Midcentury Suburbia Made People Sick.

Late century, too. And now, early century.

4. Boeing Is No Longer The No. 1 Public Company In Chicago.

The company that did this is.

5. From our very own Helene Smith's "America, Summer 2016" series, Part 1A. We're planning three parts in all.



Triggering Chicago's Panic Meter
On The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour #104.

Break emergency glass on one side of town, not so much the other. Plus: Save The Intentional Walk!; Bulls In Quicksand; Golden Slumbers; Blackhawks Sign A Bunch Of Guys We Don't Care About; Bad Man Still Owns Chicago Fire; Chicago Sky Falling Already; Illinois Finally Tops Baylor; and The NFL Is Its Own Organized Crime Family.


The Sound Opinions Weekend Listening Report: "Bob Dylan, one of the most iconic American artists of the 20th century, just turned 75 this May. Jim and Greg examine the extraordinary career of the music legend in the first of a two-part series. This week, they explore Dylan's folk days to the moment he went electric."


I have argued for years that Dylan is the greatest artist who's ever lived. Who else? Shakespeare? Da Vinci? Dylan. Not everyone understands the depth, breadth and reach of his art.
