The Weekend Desk Report

We'll be taking a lovely nap this weekend while our minions take care of the hard work.

Market Update
Oil prices surges to another record high this week despite an unexpected drop in consumption. Officials point out that recent changes in a key coalition could lead to serious shortages in the marketplace.

Junta Burning Love
Officials in cyclone-ravaged Myanmar pledged to continue their hard work making disaster relief as complex and bewildering as possible this weekend. No vacations for these guys.

Hot and Bothered
Let's not discriminate here, folks. Even the mediocre ones like a little warming every now and then.

Magic Bus
Chicago Transit Authority officials this week announced an ambitious slate of changes on a number of heavily-trafficked routes. Plans include bus-only lanes, interactive bus-tracker screens, pre-paid fare kiosks and free community bicycles. Not satisfied with this minor revolution, CTA chief Ron Huberman also promises drop-down masks for the next time your train catches fire, free rides for high school and college seniors, and magical buses that run on Vienna Beef. Oh, and everybody's getting a pony.

Timing is Everything
By the way, be sure to celebrate National Train Day. If you dare.

If It Ain't Broke...
And finally this week, duh.
