The Weekend Desk Report

We were going to post this report early, but we didn't want to interrupt your weekend with news you need to know.

Market Update
Look, the last European downgrade was pretty devastating. But if, as predicted, one of the big guns falls, it could spark a global depression.

Peace Pipeline
You know, it's true what they say. If you spend enough time around your pets pretty soon you'll start to look like them. In fact, leave it long enough and no one will be able to tell who's the dog.

Hair of the Dog
You know, we might buy Blago's substance abuse claims if he had the decency to pretend he drinks to forget the last ten miserable fucking years like the rest of us.

Clear as Glass
In related news, wouldn't it be nice to have the abuse of trust precede the inevitable disbarment?

Detente Duo
Finally this week, there are reasons for guarded optimism as North Korea announced it is ready to engage with the world again. Meanwhile, Iraq may soon be left naked, but don't worry; the ravages of war are easily airbrushed.
