The Weekend Desk Report

Special Halloween Edition
Hey, you just managed to get poorer; you may well get fatter as well. If you're still looking for the perfect last-minute Halloween costume, here are our suggestions:

1. The One Percent
Who wouldn't want this costume, right? You can lock out anyone you want and you always get to keep the treats.

2. Greek Sovereign Debt
You won't be the most popular one at the party, but someone will feel compelled to share their candy just to keep you there.

3. Mitt Romney
Actually, you might be the most popular one at the party, but that's mostly due to attrition.

4. Illinois House Representative
If you're in the mood to hand out the treats, this one's tailor-made for you. In fact, you don't even have to be at home to open the door.

5. CPS Teacher
Just don't knock on the door of City Hall; you'll get nothing but dirty tricks.
