The Weekend Desk Report

We've jumped over the fiscal cliff so you don't have to.

Market Update
The good news is, brains are apparently our most important natural resource. The bad news is, they're not worth much.

Ditka Measuring
Well, one thing is clear as the Bears and 49ers prepare to face off Monday night: Mike Ditka is not going to let Jim Harbaugh have the last word on anything.

Minor Keys
Of course, Mike Ditka's "very minor stroke" wasn't the only small, totally inconsequential bit of news this week:

1. Israel launched a very minor offensive against Hamas;
2. Long Island has some very minor power delivery problems;
3. Bashar al-Assad has a very minor insurrection on his hands;
4. Mitt Romney is a very minor league asshole;
5. Mike Ditka's son has a very minor substance abuse problem, and;
6. Jay Cutler has a very minor concussion.

Virgin Vintage
Finally this week, President Obama surprised House Speaker John Boehner with the perfect birthday gift: a 15-year-old that Boehner can consume to stay young.
