Oprah Winfrey, Ernie Banks awarded Medals of Freedom

Two Chicago legends, Ernie Banks and Oprah Winfrey, were honored today by another, Barack Obama, when he awarded them the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the county’s highest civilian honor.

Banks, 82, is a bald and bespectacled Hall of Famer who still is called “Mr. Cub” more than 40 years after retirement.

Winfrey, 59, is the former talk-show diva who topped this year’s Forbes list as the country’s most powerful celebrity for work across TV, film, publishing and philanthropy.
