Local yachters want the Park District to do something about cursing by musical acts at Northerly Island and they're naming names: Snoop Dogg and Wu-Tang Clan, among others. On September 2, boaters protested a Snoop Dogg show by blasting their horns from Burnham Harbor. Clear Channel, which books the concerts at Northerly, has been asked by the Park District "to be careful" about the groups it brings there.
