The Weekend Desk Report

The Beachwood Reporter Weekend Desk: the third time's definitely not the charm.

Market Update
Good Ideas took a tumble this week when top rating agency S&P determined most of them are actually incredibly bad ideas.

Warded Off
Remember when Mayor Emanuel's difficult decisions included things like reforming inefficient city services and axing a bloated payroll? We'd all better watch our backs; that new 2nd Ward map looks suspiciously like a giant X carved through the heart of the city.

Back to Reality
Remember when soap operas featured sex and cartoonish villains and secret heirs apparent no one knew anything about? Now it's just a bunch of boring white guys and a state that can't count. No wonder folks are turning back to cable access.

State of Charity
Remember when charities in Pennsylvania used to be, you know, charitable? Yeah, neither do we.

Cold Comfort
Finally this week, remember when Rick Santorum actually had a job in government? He'd better watch out: turns out South Carolina isn't the best place to show up without one.
