The Weekend Desk Report

Much like Taste of Chicago, we remain truncated, reconfigured and a complete waste of time.

Market Update
Wow. We never thought CNN would be writing punch lines for us.

Overwhelming Evidence
Chicago's inspector general announced this week that the police department cannot account for some 5,000 - 10,000 pieces of evidence collected from crime scenes. Which seems pretty insignificant considering the sheer number of items the city and state can't account for.

Triumvirate Outreach
Apparently Brittney Spears is showing her powerful side by demanding to fly right the hell over Lindsay Lohan to get to Amanda Bynes even though Bynes steadfastly denies she's done anything wrong. Oh, and by the way Paris? No one's buying.

Wait a minute . . . does this mean our Fucking Ass has been Laughed Back On? Or has it been conclusively Laughed Off? Can someone please clarify the status of our Fucking Ass?!

Bitter Pill
Finally this week, maybe this Illinois law just needs to be tweaked to clarify the definition of "force." You know, for the pharmacies' own good.
