The Weekend Desk Report

The Weekend Desk: fatigue is always a factor.

Market Update
Huh, turns out much of the progress of the past 80 years is built on a toxic foundation of corruption and illegality. Good luck cleaning that up.

Thorium Mike
Because when you try to scrub a toxic foundation, it tends to fight back.

High-Rise Rahm
And don't even try to argue with the glamorous high-rises sitting atop that foundation, because modernity laughs in the face of ethical accountability.

Private Progress
After all, turnaround is always fair play, isn't it?

Many-Splendored Thing
Finally this week, welcome to Chicago, pups, where abandonment is often mistaken for love.
