The Weekend Desk Report

Vortex Report
"Chicagoans will see a portion of their electricity bills rise in coming years because of new electric grid rules tied to the polar vortex, according to power auction results that were made public Friday," the Tribune reports.

Meanwhile, the financial crisis at CPS has now been tied to a bipolar vortex.

The universe, however, is not a vortex.

Therefore, bad governance is not universal.

Server Report
Michael Jordan Awarded $8.9 Million In Lawsuit Against Chicago Supermarket.

That means a $1.78 million tip for the jury.

Blago Report
"Lawyers for imprisoned ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich filed a motion on Friday asking a federal judge to hold off on resentencing until they learn whether the U.S. Supreme Court will take on his case," the Sun-Times reports.

Be careful, lawyers. Blago is a prime candidate for sentence-lengthening based on the "Just Being Annoying" and "Are You Still Around?" clauses of the revised Patriot Act. One more time-wasting appeal could mean indefinite detention.

Rauner Report
Governor Signs Gay Conversion Therapy Ban For Young People.

Old people, you're on your own.

Alternate: Replaced by charter school conversion therapy.

Show Me A Hero: A Q&A With David Simon
"This is all predicated upon a 40-year history of American government at the federal, state and local level using public money to purposefully hyper-segregate our society. Poor people didn't end up all packed into housing projects in one square mile of Yonkers by accident. It was a plan. It was a plan in Chicago, in Baltimore, in Dallas and everywhere that took federal housing money since the 1930s."
