The Weekend Desk Report

Natasha Julius is on a special assignment involving fracking, macking and phone-hacking. We hope to God she returns next week.

Market Update
Shares of the Canyonero fell sharply this week amidst revelations that it doesn't perform well in winter or in pursuit of criminals, which are kind of two of the most important factors in a Chicago police vehicle.

Driver's Ed
Maybe those Tahoes can be repurposed.

*

"A recent visit to a driving site revealed cars with strips of duct tape, busted taillights and several dents and depressions."

And that was just the teachers' parking lot.

*

Possibly ironic.

*

Whatever happened to walking a beat? It could save some cops some money.

Revenue Enhancements
Why stop here?

Greeting cards ($5): Congratulations on your recent zoning approval!

Autographed photos ($7.50): It was nice doing business with you! Sincerely, the Finance Committee

Manny's Groupon: 50 percent off your next lunch if 100 people who plead out a marijuana possession case buy in.

R. Kelly's Closet
Because Peach Panties was taken.

College Prep
The world's greatest college football report. For entertainment purposes only, including gambling.

Prank Props
A 30-foot long banner made by high school students in New Orleans in preparation for the Saints-Bears game on Sunday was stolen.

*

Police investigation going nowhere.

Saturday Night Live
I'm filling in tonight behind the bar at the venerable Beachwood Inn so stop in for a cold brew or two. Doors open at 3! I'll be there until 9 and then (almost certainly, unless it's totally dead) back at 11 until close - at 3! Bring your jukebox money.
