Icicles are everywhere. These beautiful spears are waiting to slice from atop skyscrapers to the sidewalk. Watch out!
A pleasant day for paper hawking. People are getting over the Bears Blues, and are looking toward March in two weeks.
Speaking of spears, Britney Spears shaved her head. The Sinead O'Connor look might clear the way for a good thought to come through. Cute kid, but has the street smarts of Paris Hilton. Even Hollywood streets need better smarts than what she's working with.
Being bald is not the issue that she's dealing with. If so, it makes Chicago's own Michael Jordan as messy. When Telly Savalas did it, his sexy-factor kicked up two notches. Women thought he invented steam.
Foie gras is in the news. Seems we can't have it. I didn't know. It is food, or part of food, and it is on the list of taboo foods. It is part of a duck (or is it a goose?) -- its liver. I don't know why it is illegal, but Doug Sohn, owner of Hot Doug's, was busted for selling them stuffed in a hot dog.
Stop at Doug's joint and buy a dog or two. He sells fries cooked in duck fat, which sound delicious. He might pay a fine for breaking the law, as he should, but maybe people will find out how silly the law is.
