The Weekend Desk Report

By Natasha Julius

The Weekend Desk knows no holidays.

Change Watch
Despite a hostile takeover bid from former subsidiary Reality TV, it appears Reality has the backing of most investors this week. Analysts note that while Reality TV appears to have plenty of cash and a complete lack of shame, the cold, hard ring of truth makes Reality tough to take down.

Panic on the Streets of London
As a significant anniversary approaches, a heavily-censored report indicates the UK is ill-equipped and uncoordinated in its response to even the most mundane of domestic security threats. Fortunately, the report notes, many of these criminal elements appear to be losing the will to fight on their own.

Indy Hop
It's taken long hours of negotiation, but organizers say they are confident that the Indianapolis 500 will thrive after some delicate restructuring. Analysts note the current ownership arrangement will undergo significant modernization in the near future.

Racing Season
Of course, the Indy 500 is not the only race to kick off this weekend. Observers note the thrilling conclusion of the world's most demanding marathon has brought this niche sports more mainstream attention. Should there be some sort of upset in this month's Foregone Conclusion race, there might even be some sort of a TV deal in the future.

Finally this week, remember way back when, when we mentioned our suspicions concerning long-delayed sequels? In other news, duh.


Programming Note
Please note these late Friday additions:

* Going to Pot. Beachwood legal correspondent Sam Singer examines California's discussion about legalizing pot. Would federal law trump a new state law?

* Chicago Blog Review: The Urbanophile. Beachwood Books editor Katie Buitrago examines a must-read blog for all, um, urbanophiles.
