The Weekend Desk Report

We're not going to comment on why we've cancelled our vacation. Point is we're here.

Market Update
The crisis of confidence in Europe continued this week as both Iceland and Greece grappled with credit bail-out options. Meanwhile, Finland and Russia saw their credibility ratings sharply curbed.

Angel of Doomsday
As the city contemplates the impact of a sweeping budget crisis, public schools chief Ron Huberman this week revealed a radical plan to reduce a projected $1 billion deficit. His main strategy involves recycling rhetoric from his last job.

Dry of the Tiger
After re-evaluating the promotional prospects of the 12-year zodiacal calendar, experts have announced 2010 might be better-positioned as the Year of the Gator.

Back to the Table
After a month facing the real threat of international admonishment, it appears the world's most powerful celebrity dictatorship has been dragged back to long-abandoned negotiations. Experts, however, doubt the reckless triumvirate's ability to avoid the taint of controversy for long.

Don't Ask, Don't Tweet
