The Weekend Desk Report

Natasha Julius is on a secret mission inside the Newt Gingrich campaign. She'll return next week; in the meantime, it's up to us.

Bigger Threat
"A prison inmate who escaped from a moving van near Lockport while in transit from a court appearance was captured six hours later south of Joliet after police dogs caught his scent in a yard storing portable toilets and a helicopter crew using infrared technology located him in one of the toilets, authorities said," the Tribune reports.

We have infrared technology that does that?


Don't tell the NFL.

Inside Job
"Authorities were searching for a man who robbed a bank in the Irving Park neighborhood [Friday] evening," the Tribune reports.

Police released this sketch of the suspect.

Insider Jobbed
"An Illinois-based futures fund on Friday said its more than $50 million account with the broker-dealer unit of MF Global Holdings Ltd. is missing, and asked a federal bankruptcy judge to order the trustee to find it," Crain's reports.

Police released this sketch of the suspect.

Court Sport
"Blagojevich Sentencing To Take Two Days . . . "

Why? Is Blago gonna . . . damn, stole my punch line!

Organized Crime
"J. P. Morgan Chase & Co. on Friday announced it wants to hire 400 workers in the next few months to help staff its downtown Chicago office," Crain's reports.

"The bank will hold a job fair Tuesday at 10 S. Dearborn St. to interview applicants for its loan processing, underwriting and loan closing positions."

Hint for your application: Candidates who have never been convicted of a felony will be eliminated first.

Indiana Jones
"Executives from the company that owns the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Chicago Board of Trade met Friday with Indianapolis' mayor as the city tries to lure the iconic firm away from Illinois," AP reports.

The sticking point is reportedly the Indianapolis part.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Reportedly.


The Sound Opinions Weekend Report: "Wish you were in New Orleans right now? Then tune in and take a virtual trip with this week's guest Trombone Shorty. Plus, fans have been waiting for over 40 years for Brian Wilson's 'lost album Smile, and now it's here."
