    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    Friday's White Sox-Minnesota Twins game in Chicago has been postponed for forecasted cold, windy conditions.

    A makeup time and date have not yet been announced. The Sox asked fans to keep game tickets and parking coupons for the postponed game until a makeup game is determined.

    The team noted this is the sixth game in U.S. Cellular Field's history to be canceled for cold temperatures. The last was April 10, 2008, also against the Twins.

    Radars show highs in the low- to mid-40s with winds gusting to 35 and 40 mph. The cold shift follows a major storm that poured record rain on the Chicago area, causing widespread flooding.
