- Neil Patrick Harris is back hosting the Tony Awards Sunday, CBS LIVE!
- Again, let's face it. Chicago has a gang problem. And no official fireworks. Navy Pier cannot handle the crowd if those who want to head down there, decide to do just that. Wow.
- Why do I not believe them when they say sprouts are the cause of the e-coli breakout? It was cucumbers, then sprouts, then not sprouts, and once again, yes, it is sprouts. Huh?
- Good news for Illinois. United Airlines is hiring 1,300.
"Midnight in Paris"

Notes: I still wonder about a glut happening at the movie houses. Not all these movies will be able to share the screens. I can and will say see "Super 8" by J.J. Abrams. Love the style and feel of this movie. Make more of them please. I also wonder about superhero fatigue setting in. Much like after a series of storms or any story that gets overkill, it will happen. Yes, even if the coverage is good, people tire of it. It's human nature. With "Pirates" doing better overseas than here in the states, I see them taking that film out and letting others hop in. Meanwhile, May saw a record for the month at the BO. No, not for attendence, but moneywise.
- "American Pickers Weekend" from the History Channel opened up in LeClaire, Iowa June 4-5. Congrats to those who won the Lunch With A Picker: Robert Jones of Sedalia, MO; Brad Duesler of Middleton, WI and Kathy Washburn of Kewanee, IL. Along with Danielle and Cody, on hand was Roy Flachs - - "Mushroom" Antique Appraisal Show.
-. "Midnight in Paris" finally goes wide on June 10 after an impressive showing so far. Still looking ahead, "Super 8" looks real intriguing. J.J. ("Lost") Abrams takes us on a this journey.
- History Channel and Jimmy Kimmel have their best months ever in May. Absolutely no correlation between the two. And the biggest and real winner of the late night wars is "Nightline."
- Please, let's retire the phrase, "Die Hard Cubs Fans" for a while.
