The Weekend Desk Report

Natasha Julius is on assignment searching for America. We'll watch the news for her while she's gone.

Greek Omelette
The European Union is close to a deal that would bail out financially beleaguered Greece. Members of the Papandreou administration have already applied for their bonuses.

Whammy Bar
In what researchers are calling a "double whammy," two studies of more than a million Englishmen and women indicates that obesity combined with excessive use of alcohol acts in concert to raise the risk of liver disease. The results of the studies will be published in next month's Journal of Duh.

Lehman Law
A year-long study by former U.S. attorney Anton Valukas into the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers found the Wall Street firm engaged in "actionable balance sheet manipulation." Editors at The Journal of Duh responded by doubling the size of next month's issue.

Driving Lesson
"Toyotas Are Safe (Enough)," a post by New York Times blogger Richard Wright says.

Yes, unless you are behind the wheel or in the car right in front of one.

Auld Acquaintance
The City of Chicago will dye its river green today in remembrance of its long lost friend: Money.

Chin Music
Rudy "the Chin" Fratto was charged on Friday with bid-rigging at McCormick Place in the kickoff to the city's Retro Weekend celebration.

Tiger Tale
Tiger Woods' family life is "getting back to normal," according to TMZ. Can you get "back" to a place you never were?

Chinese Democracy
Google is "99.9 percent" sure to withdraw from China rather than comply with that nation's censorship demands. Google is currently searching for that .1 percent reason to rationalize staying.

Finger Pointing
Cubs GM Jim Hendry this week responded to Milton Bradley's complaints about playing in Chicago by saying Bradley should look in the mirror. And then Bradley should hand the mirror to Hendry so he can do the same.

This just in: Mirror sales up 200 percent in Wrigleyville this year.
