The Weekend Desk Report

Inspired by this week's weather, we've invented a new game: 25 Degrees of Kevin Bacon. One day your career's red hot, the next the bottom drops out.

Market Update
Well, look at the bright side. It turns out we smoked 50% less than we thought in 2009. So that should pay off . . . hopefully sometime before 2024.

Sure Bet
Interest in this weekend's Belmont Stakes continues to wane after punters finally noticed that Animal Kingdom has actually won every single Triple Crown race ever.

Weiners
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin reacted shadily this week to revelations she tried to have a tanning bed installed in the governor's mansion in Juneau. "My system was hacked," Palin declared. "I cannot say with certitude whether those were my streaky legs, but anyone can see I'm naturally this orange."

Deliberate Deliberations
In other former governor news, the jury in the corruption retrial of Rod Blagojevich used its first day of deliberation to decide to knock off early. Perhaps inspired by the evidence before them, jurors also set a rotation of who gets to hide in the bathroom when the discussion gets too intense.

All You Can Eat?
Finally this week we know it's a long shot, but is it possible the bidder was just confused and really, really hungry?
