The Weekend Desk Report

"The McDonald's across from Wrigley Field will close on March 1 to make way for a hotel," DNAinfo Chicago reports.

From the link: "The Ricketts family also owns the land across from the ballpark where a McDonald's now operates. Renderings showed it housing a glass, L-shaped hotel with a courtyard facing Wrigley. A McDonald's, however, would remain on the property, though it may be rebuilt to better fit with the hotel, according to the plans."

Every last charm is being removed from Wrigley Field as our Cubs overlords create a new neighborhood called Rickettsville. One of the coolest things about the ballpark was that it was just sitting on a corner like any other business - T-shirt store, 7-Eleven, McDonald's, baseball stadium. That's what made it part of the neighborhood.

Sigma Alpha Ick
"The fraternity connected to a racist chant caught on video at the University of Oklahoma last spring said Friday that members at five other chapters acknowledged hearing the chant over the last five years," the Tribune reports.

"The Evanston-based Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity would not release the names of the other chapters identified after an investigation launched last year, but each of those chapters was educated on diversity and inclusion, said SAE spokesman Brandon Weghorst.

"The organization had to create some level of amnesty to ensure honest and open dialogue and to maintain the integrity of the investigation," Weghorst said.

Translation: We had to insure that no one would be held accountable if we were to get some semblance of the truth out of our members.

Here's the funny thing about that: Look at SAE's motto.
