The Weekend Desk Report

The Weekend Desk: Committed to getting it right. You know, the second or third time around.

Market Update
The value of Human Life slumped this week as analysts indicate at least 12 people find Human Life really fucking boring.

Strike It Rich
The prospect of a CTU strike looms large this weekend as union and CPS representatives remain locked in a stalemate. Although specifics of negotiations have not been released, issues including step and lane raises are believed to loom large and could total hundreds of millions of dollars. Or, to put it in terms Rahm Emanuel can more easily understand, a couple of super PACs.

The Replacements
Of course, CPS could always hire replacement teachers from Division III schools. What's the worst that could happen, right?

Red Bullshit
Now we know why Red Bull gives you wings - so you can make a cleaner getaway.

Windy Shitty
Lance Armstrong has officially been banned from running in next month's Chicago Marathon. Coincidentally, Paul Ryan recently announced he actually won the 2004 Tour de France.

Blades Of Glory
Finally this week, a spectacularly crappy jobs report may lead Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke to enact more radical stimulus measures. Analysts say Bernanke may be willing to personally hire every single American to mow individual blades of grass on his lawn.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Mow better.
