The Weekend Desk Report

In recognition of our vital role in establishing world peace, the Weekend Desk will be forced to share this update with two other pieces of furniture.

Market Update
Presidential Dignity plummeted this week to its lowest level in nine years. Analysts point out, however, that this has historically been an extremely volatile market.

Change to Believe in
President Obama used the Super Bowl Bears' White House visit to invoke his old campaign promise of hope, saying if Mike Ditka and Buddy Ryan could get together, "anything is possible." So all we need is for John Boehner to open a steakhouse and Harry Reid to punch Dick Durbin in the face.

Charge Ahead
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn this week announced his plan to make the state the nation's leader in the manufacture of electric vehicles. These vehicles will of course be charged using clean coal and come with a free CTA potty break.

Fringe Benefits
Finally this week, Chicago Marathon organizers this week finally revealed who benefits when overheated runners drop extra clothing along the course. With unseasonably warm temperatures once again on-tap for Sunday, organizers have yet to reveal who benefits when runners ditch their mortal coil along the course.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Coiled.
