The Weekend Desk Report

Thank goodness CPS is looking to protect its students from graphic depictions of violence.

Market Update
Progress had a lackluster showing this week, as its gains were shown to lag far behind reality.

Jobs Fair
Just imagine for a second that Pat Quinn could big-time Rahm Emanuel Michigan-style. Who should he appoint to be Chicago's Emergency Financial Manager?

Well-Appointed
While we're at it, who should replace Penny Pritzker at the Chicago Board of Education? In the interest of maintaining the grand tradition of nepotism and insularity, how about Pat Quinn's brother?

Double Jeopardy
Finally, we think we've got the perfect replacement for Alex Trebek. After all, Forrest Claypool is getting really good at giving answers to questions nobody asked.

Comment From Our Very Own David Rutter: I have spent a good month awash in all the videos of Christopher Hitchens. His mind energizes me . . . and this event in Chicago is just the sort of insanity he would rant about . . . and I would, too . . . All believers in the age (and duty) of enlightenment should find it abhorrent. We are not supposed to be a place where religious blasphemy is punished. Free speech and bans on blasphemy are incongruent concepts. We are supposed to revel in the right to dismiss as stupid anyone's religion.

As Hitchens noted often: When he entered his hotel room, retrieved the Bible left there without his approval and heaves it out the window, he was violating no law except the one against litter.

The Sound Opinions Weekend Listening Report: "Bowie is back! Jim and Greg talk with longtime Bowie producer Toni Visconti about Space Oddity, glam, and swinging London. Then they review David Bowie's new album The Next Day, re-igniting their decades-long debate over the pop chameleon's musical legacy."

The Flying Saucer Weekend Brunch Report: "We here at the Flying Saucer believe that everyone is entitled to healthcare; it is a right, not a privilege.

"A dear friend of the Flying Saucer, Jason C., was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer and does not have health insurance.

"This weekend is for Jason. 10% of all sales will go to help pay Jason's medical bills. Fellow restauranteur, loyal customer and friend, here's to you, Jason.

"And if you're feeling generous, tell your server you would like to contribute to the cause!"
