The Weekend Desk Report

The Weekend Desk reports this Friday from New Zealand, where the mountains are gorgeous, the water is clear and the police misconduct is a whole lot easier to stomach.

Market Update
Despite growing consumer confidence and a strong market, it appears that Bonds yields will be much lower than anticipated. Experts stress, however, that a rollover could still generate interest.

Stem of All Evil
Taking a stand against "cross[ing] a moral boundary," President Bush this week used his veto powers to reject a bill calling for expansion of stem cell research. In 2001, Bush famously authorized use of existing stem cell lines in medical research, saying essentially that once the ethical damage had been done it was more or less fair game. Yeah, we sort of thought that policy might bite him in the ass one day.

Fat and Happy?
Anecdotal evidence this week suggests that many people who have undergone gastric bypass surgery subsequently become addicted to drugs or alcohol, a process known as addiction transference. In related news, the United States announced its intention to remain addicted to oil, saying it was afraid to think what it might get hooked on next.

Beating the System
With the death of Ta Mok this week, it's time to update the official Beachwood Global Justice standings. Here's how the leading judicial vacation spots are looking:

Cambodia: Denied. Again.
Chile: Denied.
Former Yugoslavia: Denied.
Iraq: Delayed. Again.
Liberia: Farcical.
Uganda: Delayed and denied.
