The Weekend Desk Report

After a wave of criticism we've decided the unincorporated sections of this Report won't have to be funny after all.

Market Update
Meet the new 9-9-9 Plan: 9% unemployment; nine days of scandal; and the 99 percent.

Meeting of the Minds
News broke this week that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel summoned new Cubs President Theo Epstein for a little chat at City Hall. The result? All Cubs home games will now last half an inning longer.

Sticks and Stones
Native American groups have reacted angrily to Kris Jenner's use of the term "Indian giver" in reference to her daughter's engagement ring. After all, they point out the correct term for throwing a shitload of money at a hopeless cause is "Greek bailout".

Finally, we've got news for the producers of the latest James Bond film. Topical as their title may be, these stories usually wind up fizzling on reentry.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Topical.
