Ruling Unsealed: National Security Letters Upheld As Constitutional
"NSL recipients still can be gagged at the FBI's say-so, without any procedural protections, time limits or judicial oversight. This is a prior restraint on free speech, and it's unconstitutional."

The Weekend Sound Opinions Listening Report: "Like all human activity, even rock music has an ecological impact. On this Earth Day, environmentalist Bill McKibben and musician/activist Adam Gardner join Jim and Greg for a discussion about the complicated relationship between music and the environment. Jim and Greg also talk to music supervisor Randall Poster about bringing tunes to the big and small screens."

Note: Prince's death occurred on their deadline; a tribute show is in the works.

The Weekend Desk Pizza Report
A pie chart of 40 types of pizza including "The only one we can all agree is truly terrible and not even really pizza . . . Chicago deep dish."

The Weekend Desk Hot Dog Report
"It may be a little roadside stand on Route 140 in Mendon, but Larry Joe's New England Fire Pit serves some of the biggest and best hot dogs in New England," CBS Boston reports.

"Larry Joe's makes half-pound all-beef natural casing old fashioned-style hot dogs and sausages. They're marinated in hot apple juice and molasses to help make them juicy, plump and sweet before being placed on the hot grill.

"Bringing a taste of Chicago to Natick, Spalla's is known for their addictive Italian-style beef sandwiches and real deal Chicago-style hot dogs."

The Weekend Desk Italian Beef Report
"55 Chicago open[ed] its doors to the public at, you guessed it, 55 West Chicago Street in downtown Chandler, right next door to The Perch," Phoenix New Times reports.

"The Chicago-themed restaurant and bar features indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a fireplace, modern decor, and a large bar. The menu will include everything from burgers and panini to salads, fajitas, and lasagna. And in keeping with the Windy City theme, 55 Chicago will also serve a deep-dish pizza, Chicago-style hot dog, and hot Italian beef."
