The Weekend Desk Report

While you're sweating it out around the barbecue this weekend, remember to pour out a little Budweiser in memory of . . . well, Budweiser.

Market Update
It's gotten so bad, apparently, we're now actively whoring out our natural wildlife refuges. Well, you know, more than usual.

Only As Young As You Feel...
Concerned that his relative decrepitude will become a campaign issue, John McCain this week released a glowing health report and had a massive tumor excised. Doctors warn, however, that despite his robust health, the presumptive GOP presidential candidate is still flat-out wrong.

Miscount
Incoming MacDonald's CEO Jim Skinner this week took aim at efforts to force fast food restaurants to post calorie counts on menu boards. Skinner labeled the plans "redundant and flawed" as he addressed a restaurant convention at McCormick Place. "Besides," he noted, "the calories alone won't kill you; it's the fat and the sodium that'll drop you like a rock."

Postcards from the Triumvirate
Just when things were starting to look up for Lindsay Lohan, her troubled relationship with mother and notorious mis-manager Dina is set to become front page news. Meanwhile, Barack Obama boasts he's not the slightest bit afraid to engage with Paris Hilton.

Song and Dance
Finally this week, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the pageantry, power and excitement of this weekend's premier event. We're talking, of course, about the Eurovision Song Contest. Go Sweden!
