The Weekend Desk Report

In most of the world, when a monstrous, unfeeling tyrant is toppled after more than 40 years in power, people tear down the symbols of their rule. In this country, we hide behind them.

Market Update
There's been a sharp increase in the value of Children this week. Just not these children.

Investigate This.
Just a suggestion for NCAA President Mark Emmert: If Penn State isn't in violation of your organization's bylaws, perhaps you should investigate yourself.

Title Hopes

Firing Blanks

Long Game

No Game Balls
Finally this week, duh.
