Keeping Score In Chicago Episode 6: Hey Buddy, Can You Spare $34 Gazillion?

The longer this economic crisis goes on the more we're all getting screwed. Even Santa Claus wants a government bailout.

This week we're talking about the great Goose Island Sit-in at Republic Windows and Doors, Brian Urlacher's baby momma drama, selling Chicago's parking meters (thanks a ton, Mayor Daley) and the dangers of getting your first kiss AFTER you say, "I do."

Also local musician Andrew Francis debuts his new song, made special for Keeping Score in Chicago, "Dollars & Change." Hopelessness will set you free.
