The Weekend Desk Report

If only all Chicago elections were this entertaining.

Special Olympic Edition
Have you heard the news?! Rio's a disaster, which means we're still in this thing! Maybe this has been Mayor Emanuel's plan all along . . . Consider:

Exhibit A: Olympic Village? Hell, we've got 50!

Exhibit B: If any of the cycling time trials take longer than 30 minutes, the athletes pay a penalty!

Exhibit C: Bob Costas won't have to worry about his pink eye, because these Olympics will be broadcast on CNN!

Exhibit D: Best. Judging controversies. EVER.

Exhibit E: Guess that DePaul stadium deal doesn't seem so damn shady now, does it?
