The Weekend Desk Report

We'll be doing a lot of things this weekend, but this sure as hell isn't one of them.

Market Update
Well, take heart. The next time the market decides to plummet there's only a 1-in-22 trillion chance that it will crush you to death.

United Front
The international community is shuffling uncomfortably and staring at its shoes this week after Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas formally requested UN recognition. In addition to forcing Israel's hand, full statehood clears the way for Palestine to opt out of No Child Left Behind. Which is, in a word, awkward!

Call of Duty
What looks worse than refusing to accept a few unpaid furlough days for a job you barely work? Admitting you've barely been working it of course.

Solar Flair
A flurry of activity has greeted the news that scientists at Cern have found something that travels faster than the speed of light. That thing is, of course, graft.

Ray of Light
Of course, scientists at Chicagoland's Fermilab have already discovered something traveling faster than the speed of light: a CTA bus.

Rock the Vote
At least one county in Indiana has rejected a state law aimed at streamlining election ballots by removing the names of unopposed candidates. Meanwhile, state senate leaders have vowed to fix the law and cut costs by informing citizens of election results before they even show up to vote.
