The Weekend Desk Report

The Weekend Desk goes to India for six weeks and what the hell happens? Here's a quick look at the top stories I missed while contemplating my navel.

Market Update
As I dangled somewhere over the Atlantic, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged from Mildly Disconcerting to Seriously Not Funny. Banks continued to eat each other and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson continued his slow decline into Vice President Dick Cheney.

Stuck Between Barack and a Hard Place
The entire free world was saved; except for the part where it wasn't. Meanwhile, against all the laws of nature, Rod Blagojevich's hair has amassed even greater powers.

Triumvirate Update
Despite worrying reports to the contrary the Hermit Kingdom continues to threaten Western stability. Any attempts to return Iraq to the international mainstream have gone terribly awry. And Iran continues to dabble with the kind of long-range capabilities that keep us all up at night.

Lion in Winter
Finally this week, in a mixed-up, topsy-turvy, upside-down world, it's good to know some things never change.

Thanks to everyone who filled in for me while I was away. The Weekend Desk appreciates your support!
