The Weekend Desk Report


Things are still out of sorts at the old/new Beachwood HQ. Hopefully this is the last day of madness.

Here's what we have so far, and then we'll see how the rest of the day develops:

* White Sox Report: West Coast Woes.

Including a disappointing Dodger Dog.

* SportsMonday: Lay Off LeBron.

Where witless Skip Bayless goes, the rest of the sports media follows.

Market Update
Breaking news: It's good to be rich in Chicago.

Ward Of The City
Putting aldermen in charge of truancy is a pretty good idea. Of course, they'd have to know where their ward is first.

No More Tears

Naked Ambition
Gotta admit, this headline seemed way more exciting.

Same Old Way
So it's been a couple of months now; how's that new way of doing things working out?
