The Weekend Desk Report

You wouldn't dare penalize the Weekend Desk for taking a couple of days off. After all, it's vital to maintain a friendly relationship with your weekend service provider.

Market Update
Here's a solid bet: you aren't going to get a billion dollars anytime soon. Unless you already have a billion dollars.

Suspended Karma
Sure, it's more likely that non-white students will be suspended or expelled from school, even as early as preschool. But in fairness, their largely non-white teachers are significantly more likely to be expelled as well.

Zero Stars
Huh, we would've given this fake divergence bullshit full of bland white people way less than two stars.

Finally This Week . . .
Bring It. No one cares who won the bronze.
