The Weekend Desk Report

By Natasha Julius

Just remember, everyone: sometimes it's hot in August. You have been warned.

Market Update
Action was heavy on the Music Festival exchange this week, with weather not expected to dampen the short-term futures trends. Analysts warn, however, blue-chip gains could be erased by reports of shameless hound-dogging at the smaller properties.

Circus Tour
Britney Spears finally generated some positive buzz this week, gaining a measure of respectability in her handling of two young hostages. Obama administration officials warn, however, that little has changed and Spears' reign of terror is expected to continue.

The Aim Game
Chicago's top cop Jody Weis this week hailed an 11% drop in homicides, saying it is evidence of the effectiveness of his department's strategy to arrest all violent criminals with decent aim. Community organizers remain unconvinced of the long-term benefits.

Wages of Spin
In other news, duh.

Green Machines
Finally this week, Chicago's 2016 bid committee once again reassured skeptics that, like Beijing, the city will see lasting benefits once the Games are over. Critics were quick to point out, however, that Chicago's air will be much more difficult to clear.
