    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.

    Brian Urlacher just can't help himself.

    For that matter neither can former Bear and Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers.

    So they both have that going for themselves.

    Current Bears coach Lovie Smith just wishes both comments would stay within the family.

    "When you're in the family ideally you'd like to keep things in," Smith said after the Bears first veteran mini-camp on Friday.  "When you're in the Bear family nobody is happy with where we are right now." 

    Smith acknowledged the Bears are a better football team than the one that missed the post season for their third straight year after the 2009 campaign. 

    "When we play better this year everybody will be happy," he said.

    Urlacher did not comment after the workout, instead let his play do the talking.  In his first action since wrist surgery, Urlacher picked off a Jay Cutler pass.

    Some things never change.
