The Weekend Desk Report

The Weekend Desk popped out a Weekend Filing Cabinet last summer. We'd like to take this opportunity to wish a happy first Father's Day to the Weekend Drafting Table.

Market Update
You know it's bad when the IMF warns you to keep it in your pants.

The summer's rollercoaster thrill ride in Chicago looks set to be the titanic battle between the teachers' union and City Hall. We could let the two sides battle it out, or we could wait for the box office gross to tell us the winner.

Inelegant Design
Temporary Sarah Palin Michele Bachmann this week wasted the eighth of her 15 minutes by declaring that she "support[s] intelligent design" despite being confronted with strong evidence to the contrary every time she opens her mouth. "I would prefer that students have the ability to learn all aspects of an issue," Bachmann said, including, we assume, actual subjects of debate such as the scientific and legal definition of life.

Bach to the Future
After declaring her support for wrong-headed positions, Bachmann worryingly returned to her position as forewoman of the Blagojevich jury.

Father Knows Best?
Finally this week, research indicates that 20 minutes of roughhousing with Dad is crucial to childhood development. The authors of the study remained silent, however, on the subjects of horse trading and sports metaphoring with Dad.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Paternally yours.
