The Weekend Desk Report
Turns out petulant corporate assbag was not the best Halloween costume this year.
There was a big shakeup in Public Safety Threat futures this week, as Slow-Moving Lava out-traded A Nurse. For our money, though, you're better off with blue-chip earners Bees and Hail.
Powerful. Moving. Inspiring. Now, what's Chuy Garcia going to do to combat Rahm's pathetic record on Trick or Treating?
Maybe the brutal Halloween weather explains why the Sun-Times has decided to dress up like the year 2000. Or why CPS decided to dress up like it gives a shit about community involvement.
Seriously, though, it was like Rahm Bilandic out there last night. Our kids deserve better, Chicago.
