The Weekend Desk Report

While Natasha Julius has been on missions of national import quite frequently lately, she's also utilizing The Beachwood Media Company's generous mommy leave policy to tend to her adorable 2-year-old, Tiki. Natasha has been with us from Day One here, so she's accumulated an unlimited number of mommy days to keep her fresh, witty and sane. Once again, I step into a breach I cannot fill, but which I can at least hope to contain.

Schock Treatment
"Peoria's Schock Proposes Tax Breaks For Olympic Medalists."

Hey, they didn't do that alone.

Value Meal
"Cardinal George says that city officials like the mayor shouldn't be trying to define Chicago's values," WLS-AM reports.

"The mayor says in response, he's not defining them he's just expressing them."

Hey, I didn't make up these values, they were posted on the wall when I walked in! I'm just relaying them to the rest of you!

For what it's worth, though, anyone who can diagram this statement from Rahm should be awarded an honorary University of Chicago degree:

"First of all, there has been enough been said and I'm going to be focusing on our kids. and I express my views as it relates to the values and I've always had those values which is I'm for gay marriage and legalizing it."

Peeling The Onion
"Jones called the blurb 'a very important story,' then added: 'We're surprised other major news sources are not giving it the coverage it deserves.'"

World Report
Libya begins to normalize.
