The Weekend Desk Report

Pardon us, but we have a dance to get to.

Market Update
It seems a certain fragile recovery has been dealt a blow this week. And, frankly, it's not really coping well.

Wait, you mean there's not a regrow-kidney app?

Budget Blowhards
It seems Chicago's record-setting mild winter has been an unexpected boon for CPS and its teachers union. So much money has been saved on heating costs, both sides can afford to blow a shitload of hot air.

Clean Sweeps
That just goes to show you, cleaning actual garbage is more palatable than the metaphoric crap many teachers deal with.

Razor Back Up
Oh, don't sweat it, Bobby. Arkansas is used to it.

Sinking Feeling
Finally this week, we don't want to sound cynical approaching the 100th anniversary of a major tragedy, but we really doubt this is James Cameron's final word on anything.
