The Weekend Desk Report

We would like to declare that the Weekend Desk is no longer a news source. We are now a news entertainment destination.

Market Update
Despite reclaiming a measure of financial respectability, BP suffered a blow this week as head of crude trading Henrik Wareborn resigned. Defending the decision not to replace Wareborn CEO Bob Dudley reportedly said, "Fuck him. Like we need that asshole to seem crude."

Wish You Were Here
Closer to home, Rahm Emanuel continued to defend his Chicagoiness this week as questions swirled concerning his residency status. And really, you'd think a major American city would be able to figure out whether its next mayor lives there or not. It should be just about as obvious as a fucking brick wall.

The Wall
Of course, the Illinois and Northwestern players wouldn't be the first local heroes to crash spectacularly with everyone watching this week.

The Dark Side of the Moon
Meanwhile, in-coming Tea Party candidates were quick to proclaim the late change of plan to be another nefarious plot hatched by huge difference between the two ends anyway.

A Momentary Lapse of Reason
Finally this week, seriously? The one in the sweater vest? Seriously?!
