The Weekend Desk Report

We're just trying to find an honorable way out of this one.

Market Update
If you thought the rewards for arrogance and incompetence in the banking sector were bad, wait until you see the perks in the NFL.

We can't even count for you the number of times a Weekend Desker has stood waiting at CTA bus stop in the dead of winter thinking, "I sure wish I was being waterboarded right now." So we have to applaud Senator Orrin Hatch for having the stones to call it like it is. Hell, throw in a stiff breeze and a longer wait time and we'd even take extraordinary rendition.

Doomsday Bowl
It looks as though the Big Game is destined to drag into overtime, generating a huge amount of fuss and excitement for about a week before we all hopefully forget it ever happened. Until next year, that is.

Match-up Problems
This season's Super Bowl match-up has been aching difficult for the Weekend Desk to handicap. While some players show a certain charming naivety, they couldn't possibly be young and dumb enough to be called "Colts." And try though some may, there aren't exactly any Saints in this debacle either.

Men At Work
Finally this week, US job seekers were encouraged by the news that the nation's unemployment rate fell under 10% in January. However, analysts warn the true costs of recovery may not be known for another 30 freaking years.
