Watch CBS 2 tonight and tomorrow AM for Chicago's first mayoral runoff election results and my political analysis.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel is facing off against challenger Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, while 17 incumbent aldermen also are facing runoffs. In the 2nd Ward, two candidates are vying to replace Ald. Bob Fioretti, who gave up his seat on the City Council to run for mayor, but came in 4th place in February.

My latest column and review of the must see film on PBS tonight. The cinematography alone is stunning! Tune in!
I can tell you unequivocally that among any number of behind-the-scenes films about prima ballerinas, their Adonis-like partners and the gorgeous costumes, “American Ballet Theatre: A History” stands apart.

My column highlights why Adam Sandler's new film is a potential game-changer...
It's hard to get upset at Adam Sandler for inanity, recklessness or disrespect. He's never promised America anything more than to be a jester for our amusement, a few hours at a time.
