The Weekend Desk Report

We know exactly what you'll be doing this weekend. We'll just watch the news.

Market Update
So, hang on, if you raise prices but your market share keeps on shrinking, aren't you kind of breaking even?

Killer Commute
Legislation was sent to Governor Pat Quinn this week to ban the death penalty in Illinois. Unfortunately, it seems Illinois' gas chambers will remain fully operational.

It's Not About Tampons
It looks like Guns took a backseat to Tampons in this week's Penetrative Imagery Derby. And while the Weekend Desk in general agrees that long-standing attempts to correlate the healthy functions of the female reproductive system with irrationality are offensive, limiting the debate to actual hygiene products isn't really helping matters.

It's Not About That Either
Besides, the Tribune photo editor clearly feels the debate should actually be about who farted.

Finally, Chicago citizens can take heart in one thing. Voting for one of these boobs won't be the worst decision someone makes this winter.
