Citing a change in outlook after his stroke and inspiration from the movie Lincoln, Senator Mark Kirk has announced that he supports same-sex marriage. He is only the 2nd Republican Senator to do so, after Rob Portman from Ohio. Kerry Lester the Political Editor for the Daily Herald joined John and Amy to talk about the decision. Will Sen. Mark Kirk’s support for same-sex marriage be a political liability? Alderman Brendan Reilly from the 42nd Ward joined John and Amy to talk about the city's response to the "flash mob" attacks over the weekend. Plus, a Tennessee woman decided that it would be a great April Fools joke to call her sister and say that she had just shot her husband. Her sister called other family members, one of which called the police and pretty soon her house was surrounded by the police, thinking they were about to walk in on a murder scene.
