The Weekend Desk Report

I'll be on the noon boat with my parents on Saturday hearing a tour narrated by our very own J.J. Tindall.

Later, we might check out Remix Chicago, which is just outside my door on Milwaukee Avenue in Logan Square, or even take a gander at the 606. I'm particularly interested to see the work of my pal Flash, whose Artistic Bombing Crew has been asked to throw up some art on those fresh new walls.

Then there's the Preakness. Our very own Tom Chambers says American Pharoah is beatable and the race itself is quite bettable.

Tonight, I'll be watching the Blackhawks game. Maybe my parents will, too; they used to go to North Stars games in Minnesota when I worked part-time for the team in the PR department and press box and got free tickets.

Our very own Jim "Coach" Coffman expects a much higher level of play in tonight's Game 2 than we saw in the series opener. Hear him set up the game on this week's edition of The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour: The Exquisitely Boring Blackhawks.

All the drama is on the ice. Plus: Extensive Bulls Coaching Search Turns Up Fred Hoiberg; Most Boring Manager In World Manages Most Boring Team; Cubs Make Kind Of Play They Never Make; How The Triple Crown Is Like The Cubs; and Get Sepp!

Obama Secretly Expanded NSA Spying To Internet
"The government [gathers] significant volumes of Americans' information - anything from private e-mails to trade secrets and business dealings - through Internet surveillance."

Maybe we'll be able to see our secret files at the Obama Library! Accidentally deleted an e-mail? For the small price of admission and a trip through our gift shop, you can find it here! The world would beat a path to Chicago's door.

* As The Rich Become Super-Rich, They Pay Less In Taxes. For Real.

By the way . . . this article, from the Washington Post, opens this way:

"One of the cornerstones of American income tax policy is that taxes are progressive. People who make more money devote a higher share of their income to federal income taxes than people who make less money."

Except in Illinois, which has a flat tax that is far, far, far, far, far, far, far more responsible for our state's financial condition than items in Gov. Bruce Rauner's Turnaround Agenda such as tort reform and workman's comp. Rauner's "reforms" have nothing to do with the problem at hand and everything to do with an agenda that seeks to lessen the burden on corporations and the rich instead of increasing their accountability and asking them to share the sacrifice the rest of us are making so they can maintain their wealth.
