The Week in Review with Joel Weisman
This week on Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review, Joel Weisman and his panel of guests look back at Rahm Emanuel's first week as mayor: his swearing in, his move to cut $75 million from the budget, and appointment of several familiar aldermen on City Council to lead committees. Also, the prosecution in the Blagojevich retrial rests as talk swirls about the former governor himself taking the stand in his own defense. Oprah ends her historic run with a star-filled sendoff at the United Center. Illinois legislators put a Chicago casino back on the table, debate the budget, and redraw the legislative map. And in sports, the Bulls come back to earth in game 2 against the Heat after a game 1 rout; and the White Sox could be turning their season around, powered by Jake Peavy's masterful performance.
