The Weekend Desk Report

Don't worry; we won't start our new gig before the weekend's out.

Market Update
It's true what they say; one industry's free-fall is another's feeding frenzy.

Pate of the City
With the race to succeed Richard Daley apparently almost over, we have yet to analyze one of the key factors in any Illinois election: candidate hair. Front-runner Rahm Emanuel at first seems like the logical midpoint between old-fashioned respectability and Hollywood glamour, but how much of his crowning glory has been bought?

While there's no doubt Carol Moseley-Braun's hair is her own, we suspect at 63 years of age she may be masking certain unfortunate facts of life.

Gery Chico is certainly not denying his grays, but his track record won't convince anyone he can manage a recession.

Of the major candidates, it seems only City Clerk Miguel del Valle has absolutely nothing to hide.

Jets Fuel
Finally this week, whether you prefer a right jolly Rodgering or a gentle Cutle, perhaps we can all agree it'd be nice to see all-pro dirtbag Ben Roethlisberger get the Dirty Sanchez he so richly deserves.
