The Weekend Desk Report

Oh, UK. We feel you so hard right now.

Market Update
Strong week for Entitled Men. Of course, every week is a strong week for Entitled Men.

Bruce Almighty
Hard to enact structural reforms when the structures can fight back.

Garry-Rigged
Of all Rahm Emanuel's appointees, Garry McCarthy has clearly shown himself to be the most qualified to determine reckless and irresponsible behavior. It's just amazing how Rahm keeps finding just the right person for these sensitive jobs.

Forrest Preserved
You know what? We shouldn't worry about Rahm's ability to fix Chicago's finances. His new chief of staff is bound to have some novel idea of how to raise revenues.

Endangered Species
Finally this week, is there such a thing as an "unlikely Instagram star" anymore?

The Beachwood Radio [Sports] Hour #50: Vinny Del Thibodeau
Irresistible front office meets immovable coach..

Plus: Back To Blackhawks; The White Sox' Most Unforgivable Sin; Cubs Still Have That New Car Smell; and A Chicago-Area School Will Win The National Men's Volleyball Championship.

Editor's Note: This podcast was recorded a few hours before Friday night's thrilling Bulls victory; our very own Jim "Coach" Coffman was there, however, and I suspect we'll get a first-hand account in SportsMonday.

Also, memo to Deadspin et al.: He didn't call glass.
