The Weekend Desk Report

Study hard this weekend. There may be a "pop" quiz on Monday and we'd hate to see what happens if you don't make the grade.

Market Update
Talk is still cheap. Especially with walking still so costly.

Summer Games
It's week two of the Olympics, which means the tracking is heating up. Qualifiers in Verbal Gymnastics seem content to muddle along until the final. Meanwhile, the Marathon event has lost a major contender to freak injury.

Legacy of Terror
Meanwhile, outgoing Control Vault champion George W. Bush is hoping his recent performance in the 400 Meter Spy Relay will put his world record out of reach for generations to come.

Chicago 2016
Plans to bolster Chicago's Olympic bid took center stage this week. Not to be outdone by Beijing's swift and efficient deportation of any and all protesters, the CTA has announced that by 2016 it may be able to ship dissidents all the way to Skokie. Chicago officials also say they'll do more than simply upgrade the appearance of a little girl. Plans are already in place to "beautify" entire neighborhoods.

London 2012
Finally this week, British officials have moved to identify the biggest threats to domestic security ahead of that nation's Summer Games in 2012. However, containing this agents of terror has proved nearly impossible.
