The Weekend Desk Report

"The United States Olympic Committee has not ruled out a bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics and the timing of the process makes it likely 2016 loser Chicago would be its most viable candidate," the Tribune reports.

Oh goodie, the Olympic bid returns just in time to become an issue in the mayoral race. Other issues to be debated instead of how to repair the broken piggy bank Richard M. Daley is leaving behind:

* Should we reverse the Chicago River?
* White Sox or Cubs?
* Are the children our future?

Actually, reversing the Chicago River might be a good idea. But you get the point.

Ricketts Report
"Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts will be on the campaign trail this fall in Arizona," the Tribune reports. "He is politicking for a new spring training facility in Mesa for the Cubs that will be financed with public dollars."

A better idea: If it will take public dollars to replace Jim Hendry, the campaign starts here.

Buckingham Tea Party
"Queen Sought Funds Aimed At Britain's Poorest To Pay For Heating At Buckingham Palace."

On the other hand, the White House bailed out some of America's wealthiest businesspeople with money that could have been used on the poor, so whatever.

For Those Keeping Score At Home . . .
Lindsay Lohan posted bail.

The bail pool is now closed. The next arrest pool is now open.

*

By the way, looking more and more like a hardened criminal every day.

*

Lindsay Lohan: The Complete Set of Mugshots.

*

Lindsay Lohan Jail: Services For SEO.

Is Congress Stupid?
Yes.

Which is why we've always been in favor of using public dollars to replace them.

Cubbie Occurrence
"Feds: Chicago Bomb Suspect Wanted Quick Fame."

Jim Hendry will interview him for the manager's job next week.

*

Only the Cubs: The man known as the Wrigleyville bomber is actually a bomber and not a slugger. And a failed bomber at that.

Compare and Contrast
"Black Leaders Aim To Pick A Candidate For Mayor."

White leaders don't.

The World's Greatest College Football Report
Will appear sometime before kickoff is posted, so you can still, um, act on it. Any way you want. We have no idea what you do with the information we provide. We aim only to entertain.
