The Weekend Desk Report

Old white man to replace even older white man. Details at 11.

Market Update
The Status Quo looked pretty good in early trading. Then it imploded.

Excuses, Excuses
To review, Ignorance is not a suitable excuse. Incompetence, apparently, is.

Filling In The Details
You know what? Maybe Bruce Rauner could appoint a committee to figure out how his big talk on education can be fulfilled. Maybe, like, by the time the Super Bowl rolls around, maybe.

Red Ribbon
Oh come now, no way would the Russian firm that's buying Pabst tinker with "the quintessential American brand." Although, if they do decide to shake things up, the pink ribbon should be available.

Drawn And Quartered
Not to completely dismiss this obviously nutty poll result, but it would appear 1 in 4 Americans can be convinced of just about anything.

"Radcliff had spotted a slush machine at a 1970 Chicago trade show and saw the possibilities of icy sweet drinks that could be made for a few pennies. He thought the sound of icy crystals hitting the cup, the smell and taste of flavorings and the texture pleased all the senses."

* Groupon Buries Horrible Diversity Report Hoping Media Won't Notice How White Male It Is.

* 8 Ways The Obama Administration Is Blocking Public Information.

Here's one:

"Day-to-day intimidation of sources is chilling. AP's transportation reporter's sources say that if they are caught talking to her, they will be fired. Even if they just give her facts, about safety, for example. Government press officials say their orders are to squelch anything controversial or that makes the administration look bad."

The evidence of that claim is specious, but even if true, a lot of folks the CPD arrests have "community support" too.
