The Weekend Desk Report

The Weekend Desk is proud to say we never try to make anything look better.

Market Update
The future of the controversial Bliss Index was called into question this week when market leader Ignorance was forced to admit it had grossly overestimated its holdings.

Breaking The Wave
Apparently we'll get some relief from the excessive heat this weekend. Whether this also brings relief from the excessive coverage of the excessive heat remains to be seen.

Coffer Offer

Diplomawesomeness

Death, and NOT Taxes

RomneyCare

Bieb Racer
Finally this week, as long as he's speeding into irrelevance we don't see the problem here.
