The Weekend Desk Report

Watch out. We got cash upfront this week.

Market Update
Intellectual Property took a beating this week. Well, the Intellect part did anyway. The Property part is still doing pretty fucking well.

Rebirther
Of course no one asks to see Romney's birth certificate. Animation via lightning bolt doesn't really count. Of course, enough people asked to see his rebirth certificate that he had to put it on the ticket.

White(wash) Knight
Well, if Nike stands by Lance Armstrong, he must be innocent. Nike always knows how to pick a winner.

Legitimate Threat
Tropical Storm Isaac is forecast to reach Florida as a Category 1 hurricane just in time for next week's Republican National Convention in Tampa. No word from presumptive VP nominee Paul Ryan on whether a Category 1 is considered forcible enough to abort the Convention, but we're guessing he thinks the risk of life is totally worth it.

Star Trade
Finally this week, if the BoSox could trade an "s" for a "t," L.A. would be all over it.
