The Weekend Desk Report

Nature at work. Nurture at work. Nature wins.

Market Update
Is this the kind of public-private partnership the mayor had in mind?

Springfield Follies
Of course, we all know it's exactly the kind of public-private partnership Bruce Rauner has in mind. Wonder how Rahm will be voting next month . . .

Tasteloss
Guess Jeff Tweedy has kids to clout, too. And, for that matter, so does Mia Birk.

Seriously . . .
. . . WHO hasn't been?

Credit Crunch
Finally this week, at least we know no one tried to steal the president's identity.

In light of recent events you may or may not have heard about yet, The Beachwood Radio Hour #27: Endorsements Are Bullshit is still available for your listening pleasure (as are most of our podcasts, though we still need to restore some early editions, which we hope to do soon). Edition #28 will update that sentiment based on this weekend's related breaking news, which you can also catch up on via @BeachwoodReport.

* The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour #22: The Giants Are A Better Story Than The Royals.

And Brian Sabean is the game's best (and most underrated) GM. Plus: Cubs Entering "Competitive Phase" - For Fourth Place; Why The NCAA's Best Athletes Should Drop Out Of School; Miami Is A Trap Game!; Coach Q vs. Tom Thibodeau; The Chicago Fire Make A Great Father's Day Gift.

The Sound Opinions Weekend Listening Report: "While the charts are dominated by old standards like Barbra Streisand and Tony Bennett, there are a ton of exciting, new and lesser-known acts that deserve your attention. Jim and Greg bring you Buried Treasures. Later they review the 17th release from Detroit rocker Bob Seger."

* Unable To Meet The Deductible Or The Doctor.

"Some people enrolled in private coverage through the Affordable Care Act are hesitating to use their insurance because of the high out-of-pocket costs, including this Chicago woman."

* Kadner: An Education On School Funding.

"If a politician opens his mouth to talk about school funding in Illinois, chances are good he's lying. That's the one hard and fast recommendation I have for voters and taxpayers after writing about education financing in this state for nearly 25 years."
