The Weekend Desk Report

Honestly, it could rain tiny gold ingots on Sunday. No one in Chicago will notice.

Market Update
Good thing Care is Affordable now, because Getting to It sure as hell isn't.

Homeward Boundary
So, wait, a high-performing neighborhood school can have a positive impact on real estate values? Well, thank goodness the poor folks around Obama High will finally catch a break.

Basket Ballmer
Okay, Clippers fans, the good news is, you're getting rid of your dickhead owner. The bad news is, his replacement hasn't exactly been known for picking winners.

Cost Sharing
Quick, which will wind up being more this winter: total number of potholes patched or dollar amount to keep Divvy running?

Sheer Lunacy
Finally this week, if cracking glass under your patrons' feet DOESN'T mean they're about to plummet to their death, maybe . . . post a sign?
