The Weekend Desk Report

Natasha Julius is on assignment in Daley Bicentennial Plaza watching for bulldozers. The "B" team is here to set up your weekend.

Fall Off The Earth, Boy
The countdown has begun to one of the lamest pseudo-celebrity weddings ever! Who would've thought a poor North Shore hoodie would wind up marrying a talentless lip-synching twit whose plastic surgery-altered face is due to explode in three years? All of America cares!

Guantanamo Gaughan
The Cook County judge presiding over the R. Kelly trial denied a media request for access to sealed documents in the super-secret proceeding, fueling speculation that he's angling for a federal appointment before George W. Bush leaves office.

Chills, Multiplyin'
Taylor Hicks is joining the cast of Grease. He'll play Olivia Newton-John's grandfather. Concerned legislators propose ticket-hoarding law.

Work Delay
"One Winner $196 Mega Millions."

Hold on, we have to go check on something.

Shoot. Okay, we're back.

Jerry! Jerry!
"Talk show host Jerry Springer contemplated the philosophy of workplace ethics in his commencement address at Northwestern University School of Law today."

He said it's not nice to make fun of that guy with no legs behind his reconstructed back.

DUI Dude
"A DuPage County judge has sentenced a Bensenville man to 20 years in prison for his ninth drunken driving conviction."

Some people don't know when to stop at eight.

Programming Note
Tune in to 848 on Monday morning to get the low-down on the joint investigative reporter we'll be publishing along with ChicagoTalks.

Also coming Monday: As always, we'll have our weekly Beachwood baseball package, including The Cub Factor and The White Sox Report, along with Jim Coffman's SportsMonday. We'll also have a new installment of Westward Ho! and some other treats.
