The Weekend Desk Report

Posting will continue to be sporadic until January 2 - and maybe even then!

Hence, there was no Papers column on Friday. We do have a couple new posts elsewhere on the site, however.

* Chicagoetry: More Than A Feeling.

Dude brought a rifle to school,
Naperville Central, 1978.

* The College Football Report: Specialty Yarns, Pinstripes And The Triple-Option.

Thirty-five bowl games is about a dozen too many.

But we're on top of it. From Friday:

The College Football Report: Warhawks and Weed Eaters.

"We hated the Weed Eater as a young Reporter. The plastic string would come unspooled with no warning and the spinning head would go cartwheeling over the lawn, requiring an hour of fiddling in 90-degree temperatures and 99% humidity. In other news, we never want to own a lawn."

* We also remain active on Twitter over this break - and surely will be doubly so during the Bears game on Sunday.

For example:
