The Weekend Desk Report

The weather forecast this weekend is typically blustery and depressed for this time of year.

Market Update
In this time of good fortune, may we all be more nuanced in the way we assess our remaining slack.

Travel League
Do you suppose the parade route for these incredibly high-achieving kids will pass a single Level 1 public school? Or will Rahm just force them to travel north like usual?

Kid Tease
Or maybe the city will announce a parade and then cancel it when it's too late to make other plans?

Vitale Signs
Of course, it's pretty easy to avoid this kind of embarrassment. Just don't let David Vitale plan the route.

Here's Mud In The Eye Of The Beholder
Finally this week, eight liters a year? That's what most White Sox fans drink just to get through a game.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Litered up.
