The Weekend Desk Report
Well, if we're waking up in 2018 already, have the Cubs won a World Series yet?
Just spitballin' here, but how much do you suppose Governor Rauner's fantasy law that will never pass is costing Illinois? Probably a touch more than defending the actual laws.
The point of the Weekend Desk is to bring a little humor to the absurdities of our global corporate power structure through satire and exaggeration. But where our so-called leaders are making up the craziest shit, executing the most obvious scams, and stripping the last bit of shame from their shameless hypocrisies and evasions, you don't need us.
Satire is dead. Long live Planned Parenthood.
