My neighborhood, from The Chicago Sun-Times:

A veteran Chicago Police officer is expected in court today, accused of ordering women during two separate traffic stops to flash him and, in one case, to "do a little dance" without her panties.
Mike Allegretti, who works in the Albany Park District, was charged Thursday with bribery and official misconduct, a law enforcement source said.

On my way to Nashville this weekend to talk with my mom. It's been a long time so I'm feeling some trepidation.
Family hoo-ha aside, it's good to re-visit Tennessee, no? After all, not only is it home to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, it was the setting for Justice Sunday II and the state has one of the nation's worst problems with Crystal Meth. Woo hoo!
