The Weekend Desk Report

We're back from our vacation to the Forest Preserve. Now it's time to work.

Market Update
All financial markets disintegrated late Friday evening as we learned the shocking truth that Eight is Bigger than Ten, invalidating basic arithmetic.

Meltdown Meter
Officials painted a grim picture this week as signs emerged that Japan's nuclear crisis is worsening. Meanwhile the United States scrambled to help even as our own radioactive mess grows.

Devil in the Details

Retrial and Error
Meanwhile, a federal judge this week confirmed our deepest fears: the retread of a sordid tale of excess and corruption is coming, whether we want it or not.

Gird Thy Loins
Finally this week, we're not the slightest bit upset that Tim Tebow will be running around in his underwear. We're just wondering where he's going to stick the Bible verse.
