WGN's Kathy and Judy Routine Gets the Boot

Kathy and Judy were like a feminist version of the basic shock jock. They weren't much for swearing, but they talked about the same kinds of topics that made Steve Dahl famous in the 1970s. Nothing ground breaking about what they said, except that they steered clear of the kind of controversy which would get Dahl fired from places like WLUP back in the day.

Apparently, WGN audiences were tired of cute stories about divorce and sex by two old women. Former Chicago newspaper columnists Kathy O’Malley and Judy Markey hosted for their show 20 years. Coming across like a mix of suburban gossips and hair salon complainers, audiences grew weary, and WGN decided enough was enough.

Needless to say, the ol' Hawk is tired of them two. The began sounding like two moms chatting as if no one was listening, but ended up like two biddies chatting - and no one was listening.

Chicago Tribune: The Girlfriends are going away. WGN-AM 720 this morning announced it is discontinuing the "Kathy & Judy" show, the ground-breaking mid-morning coffee klatch that former Chicago newspaper columnists Kathy O'Malley and Judy Markey hosted for 20 years.

With all the noise about Drew Peterson, Rod Blagovich and the Barack Obama gaff, it is fun to see something cool.

Michael Jordan look out. The Chicago Bulls are still my boys, but I gotta give props to King James.

Stacy Peterson's Body Found?

The authorities aren't sure yet, but they will know soon. It could also be Lisa Stebic, also lost around that time. Stacy Peterson's husband is the infamous clown Drew Peterson, the former cop. Even John Wayne Gacy had more dignity than Drew.

Meanwhile, the life and times of a newspaper hawk are a little better. Good weather offers better sales. The skirts and skirt chasers are out, creating entertaining diversions as I sit on a milk crate.

Drew Peterson: King of Class(lessness)

Drew Peterson is either extremely innocent, or extremely guilty.

Not much to say, but if he's innocent, he effectively laughs at the dead. If he's guilty, he's in mighty big trouble because the good guys think they have enough evidence to make him down.

Whatever Peterson is, a good man is not part of his description.

The News
Peterson is arrested, appears in court.
