The Weekend Desk Report

Stories we're monitoring while the weekday desk sleeps.

Market Update
Echoing steep declines in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the Election Index saw hasty sell-offs this week of consistency, relevance and, most worryingly, meaningful local coverage.

Soldiers of Misfortune
The Cold War policy of mutually assured self-destruction took a bizarre twist this week as the United States responded aggressively to the Russian army's suicidal posturing. Sadly for both parties, China seems determined not to tip their hand.

Blue Line, Gold Watch
In what is sure to mark 2007 as a landmark year for the CTA, the transit authority's first female bus operator has announced her retirement. And in what many see as a move of solidarity, the Blue Line plans to join her on the sidelines in the very near future.

Neutral Zone Infraction
When it comes to managing international crises, it seems it's good to be Swiss. In other news, Vice President Dick Cheney is reportedly planning to accidentally invade a few more key regional allies on his way back from Australia. We're not sure the Saudis will be quite so willing to laugh the incident off.

Fudge for Lent
The Associated Press broke its Lenten vows early this year, finding it impossible to swear off the irresistibly tasteless Paris Hilton for the full 40 days. Now, we're not here to criticize or anything, but come on! It's not like the AP has been starved for empty calories this week.

Hidden Treasures
In other news, duh.

Waves of Cynicism
Finally, still smarting this week from Al Gore's Oscar tour-de-force, President Bush stridently declared that dry land is totally overrated anyway.
