The Weekend Desk Report

In case you missed it, we got some snow. Not that it'll keep us from our most important endeavors.

Market Update
Society futures took a tumble this week as analysts stressed the market's fragility. Let's face it: if one more of our trusted institutions turns hostile, we're toast.

Road to City Hall
Rahm Emanuel solidified his frontrunner status this week, picking up a key endorsement. Meanwhile, rival Carol Moseley-Braun proved she knows how to apologize while heaping blame on her detractors. Which, of course, makes her the clear frontrunner for Chief of Staff. Also this week, perhaps preparing for the inevitable post-election reality, both Gery Chico and Miguel del Valle looked for easier ways to backtrack.

STFU!!!
Japan has been gripped by a texting scandal as several sumo wrestlers stand accused of using their cell phones to fix matches. The silver lining is that, pending residency confirmation, the wrestlers are now fully qualified to be mayor of Detroit.

Punx'd
The good news keeps coming for recently un-disgraced Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger; turns out he's not the only lying rodent in the state of Pennsylvania.

Change We Can't Believe In
Roethlisberger is also far from being the only unsavory character America's propped up. But then again, it's doubtful Mubarak's gamesmanship will end with a free trip to Disney World.
