The Weekend Desk Report

Sometimes, in their zeal to save as many as possible, the bravest among us cause unimaginable tragedy. And then there's this bullshit.

Market Update
You know it's bad when even your broke is broken.

Running Out The Asylum
Before anyone gets any clever ideas about rehiring laid-off teachers, Mayor Emanuel has announced plans to have them all shipped to Papua New Guinea.

Judge Dread
We could always hope a brave judge stands up to Rahm's bullying. Of course, such respite generally comes too late for the victims.

The Chicago Way
Hey, maybe those shuttered schools with the fancy new lighting will get to vote twice too.

Hardest Hit
Surely it costs Illinoisans more than $35,000 each to keep some people in the House.
