    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.

    Chicago's summer temperatures were swapped Thursday for a fall-like high of 69 degrees.

    A slow-moving cold front came through the metro area with much cooler afternoon temperatures that fell into the upper 50s north and west of Chicago, and into the low 60s south and west of the city. 

    Showers came in behind the front. The Major League Baseball game between the White Sox and the Detroit Tigers was postponed due to rain and will be made up Monday, Sept. 17 at 1:10 p.m.

    Thursday evening radar images showed most areas would get less than a tenth of an inch as colder, drier air settled in overnight. As skies clear, temperatures could drop as low as the mid- to upper 40s inland and mid-50s in Chicago.
