The only clue answered is 25 Across, which asks the name of President Obama's White House chief of staff. R-A-H-M-E-M-A-N-U-E-L is printed neatly in the boxes. When Marsha Emanuel opened the morning paper two years ago and saw the clue, she screamed so loudly that Benjamin came running down the stairs believing a robber had broken into the house.”)
Kass (“If Rahm asked me for advice, I'd give it to him, even though my shanks are perhaps even shorter than his and Daley's. I'd tell him he's smarter and tougher than the mayor, and he should quickly show some real independence. If not, he might be forever pegged as Daley's tiny dancer.”)

Ebert gives new Will Ferrell film 3 Stars (“Ferrell has a presence. He reminds me sometimes of Fred MacMurray in his noir films… There is depth there.”)
Ebert, 3-and-1/2 Stars for ‘Bridesmaids’ (‘Did I mention the movie was produced by Apatow? Love him or not, he's consistently involved with movies that connect with audiences, and "Bridesmaids" seems to be a more or less deliberate attempt to cross the Chick Flick with the Raunch Comedy. It definitively proves that women are the equal of men in vulgarity, sexual frankness, lust, vulnerability, overdrinking and insecurity.”)
AUDIO: "'Bridesmaids' is the first commerical comedy to come out Hollywood in the past 6-months that actually works..." -- Tribune film critic Michael Phillips called Jarrett earlier this morn from the Cannes Film Fest.
