The Weekend Desk Report

For the record, we still don't know what the hell that was, but apparently we went 2-for-3.

Market Update
A major shake-up happened this week on the Pervert Index as blue-chip earner Junk was devalued by a run on the lesser-known Trunk.

Year of Revolution
Of course the biggest news of this week is the revolutionary movement sweeping long-time autocrats from power across the north side of Africa. Word to the wise, though: make sure none of those strongmen quietly pop up in other key positions post-ouster.

Worst and Worsterer
Meteorologists bickered this week over a miniscule portion of the total amount from last week's blizzard qualified it as third or fourth worst. Of course, the difference between the two is not nearly as important as that between first and second worst.

Rail Roaded
We don't want to pile on to the woes of new Metra chief Alex Clifford but . . . is it just us, or is he a few clipper settings away from a certain other over-promising Illinois public figure?

Getting the Thorns
Finally this week, you'll forgive us for giving punching bag of the moment Groupon a pass on their latest snafu. After all, a few bucks here or there isn't going to make Valentine's Day any less painful.

-

The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Thorns only.
