The Weekend Desk Report

It's Labor Day, or as 14 million Americans call it, Monday. Happy Monday, everyone!

Market Update
Just to review, that's no new jobs for Labor Day weekend. Apparently, the Department of Labor doesn't even want us to work on our jokes.

Why They Play the Games . . .
It seems really unnecessary since the Irish have been clobbering anything remotely resembling a bull for years now.

School Tries
A new report suggests Chicago public high school students struggle once they reach college. Of course, many colleges seem to struggle with basic concepts like counting.

Stubborn As . . .
Meanwhile, both sides in the Rahm Emanuel vs. Public Workers spat apparently dug in their heels this week. We'd say they're stubborn as the day is long but they can't even agree on that right now.

Change Report
Memo to the President: We believe you. You can stop changing any time you feel like it.

Bogus Bonus
Finally this week, maybe this wasn't the best move . . . $6 million buys a lot of cigarettes and protection.
