The Weekend Desk Report

Sorry we're running a little late. We had the flu.

Market Update
It was a mixed bag on the Women's Index this week as the federal government announced plans to cut funding for Dignity. Not surprisingly, this was met with a massive run on Crazy. Analysts now suggest we may be in the midst of an historic depression.

Last-Minute Push
Election Day is at hand and two of the leading candidates are doing their level best to make front-runner Rahm Emanuel seem perfectly sane and reasonable. Good thing no one's paying attention to the actual sane and reasonable guy.

Homeland Security
The recently-approved plan for a Navy Pier flyover to reduce congestion on Chicago's lakefront trail was defended this week as "not a bridge to nowhere." It's worth noting, however, it's not exactly a bridge to just anywhere either.

Outland Security
Reports surfaced this week that a U.S. couple's yacht has been hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean. In response, the State Department has announced it will deploy its top agent to hijack them back.

Northern Exposure
Finally this week, duh.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: A bridge to everywhere.
