Chicago, fool!

Conan O'Brien tours the South Side with Mr. T (!), visits Sox Park, takes B.P. with Jermaine "Tito" Dye, and ... just watch it.

In other South Side Chicago news, I pity the fool who still believes the right to free speech exists in this country:

This afternoon, drinking a cup of coffee while sitting in the Jesse Brown V.A. Medical Center on Chicago’s south side, a Veterans Administration cop walked up to me and said, "OK, you’ve had your 15 minutes, it’s time to go."

"Huh?", I asked intelligently, not quite sure what he was talking about.

"You can’t be in here protesting," officer Adkins said, pointing to my Veterans For Peace shirt.
