WGN scores again! 2nd shirtless jogger video goes viral for Chicago station

Back in 2013 a sportscaster for Chicago's WGN, Pat Tomasulo, did a snarky video about male joggers running gratuitously shirtless ("Gratuitous"is an adjective AKSARBENT simply cannot reconcile with the phrase "shirtless male jogger.")
     Anyway, here's that report, complete with Tomasulo's mock sexual harassment of various dudes with his impressive repertoire of repurposed construction worker come-ons:

     The other day another WGN did it again.
     Sunday, reporter Tahman Bradley caught up with shirtless Coloradoan Ethan Renoe jogging along Lake Michigan in a global-warming adjusted December night in Illinois. The report went viral, so WGN coaxed a unseemly cooperative Renoe into its studios where Pat Tomasulo and Paul Konrad both got a crack at him. Renoe, a self-described Christian evangelical virgin who lives with his parents, is still looking for the right girl but is willing in the mean time to tease horny babes and cougars by shucking his shirt to protect it from a light rain.
      AKSARBENT thinks he should get out of his 'rents house! Maybe Tim Tebow could use a stone fox fishing buddy to help him reel in the girls and then help throw them back in the water!

     If you've read this far, your reward is the below video of Pat Tomasulo in drag. This kind of thing never happens on Omaha TV where sportscasters are such squaresville wusses.

60 Minutes: Gay U.S. Drug Czar Botticelli, who used to be a drunk, isn't crazy about marijuana legalization

Michael Botticelli, President Obama's new Director of National Drug Control Policy  used to be a drunk, but has been sober 27 years.
     He hates the sobriquet "drug czar."
     Neither is he a fan of marijuana legalization and thinks that industry, with its "Buddy" mascot, is copying Big Tobacco's Joe Camel playbook.
     Botticelli also is disenchanted with what the U.S. has to show for its 40-year, trillion dollar war on drugs.
     "We can't arrest and incarcerate addiction out of people. Not only do I think it's really inhumane, but it's ineffective and it cost us billions upon billions of dollars to keep doing this," he told 60 Minutes.
     In Massachusetts as Director of Substance Abuse Services, he started a high school for teens in recovery and expanded drug courts, where offenders can choose treatment over jail and get their charges dropped.
     Botticelli told CBS's Scott Pelley that he became comfortable talking about being a gay man before he was comfortable talking about being an alcoholic.
