The [Thursday] Papers

Weekend Note: The Weekend Desk Report will appear at some point between now and Monday. Sorry for the erratic publishing schedule lately; trying to get back on track.

-

I've got nothing today.

*

I mean, I've got a lot of material to work with, but it's the kind of material that requires a bit of work to, um, work up. I don't have that kind of work in me right now. Not for free, anyway.

*

Besides, it's all the same. Same horrible people doing horrible things. People who don't care - including people in my own profession. What's the point? It's just all so awful.

*

I did come across a few heroes this morning. I'll go with that. Today is dedicated to these heroes:

Weak-Ass Bureaucrats To Heroic Philly Citizens: Stop Turning Dumpsters Into Swimming Pools.

*

Olympian.

A Neighborhood Bar So Beloved, He Moved It To His Basement.

Logan Square Church Becomes Circus School
Classes begin for all ages September 6th in trapeze, aerial silks, pole, trampoline, hand-balancing, clowning, acrobatics, and more, including circus-based fitness classes.

Inside Bullshit Russian Doping Investigation
"The action the IOC took has forever set a bar for how the most outrageous doping and cover-up and corruption possible will be treated in the future. Those involved in running sport are former athletes, so somehow I figured that they would have honor and integrity. But the people in charge are basically raping their sports and the system for self-interest. Sport is seriously broken."
