The Weekend Desk Report

Be nice to your mother this weekend. Trust us, she doesn't get enough credit.

Market Update
A paradox emerged this week as April's jobs data and unemployment figures appeared to contradict each other. Analysts now suggest that, although there are more positions available, less people will be able to fill them.

Birther of a President
Of course, the biggest news of the week involved President Obama at long last silencing a loud-mouthed, delusional old conspiracy monger whose over-the-top rhetoric threatened our way of life. Oh, and he killed Osama Bin Laden, too.

Campaign Kick-off
Of course, if The Donald still wants to make a presidential run, perhaps he could find an organization that apparently doesn't give a shit how corrupt and self-serving you are.

Terror Ride
In the wake of Osama Bin Laden's death comes the shocking news that al-Qaeda may have had plans to derail Chicago trains and disrupt transit. And then they figured, you know, why bother?

Liar, Liar
Finally, we'd be remiss if we didn't discuss this weekend's Kentucky Derby. We know he's the sexy pick right now, but as far as we're concerned Pants on Fire looks rode hard and put away wet.
