The Weekend Desk Report

Programming Note: I had jury duty today (Monday) and I actually got picked to serve despite being a journalist with a personal interest in rock and roll. As I write this, we just finished Day 1 of what is expected to be a four-day trial, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to write columns this week. I already know I will have a lot to write about serving on a jury! I know that story has been told many, many, many times, but every trial has its twists and turns and interesting characters in the jury box and the courtroom, so I'm sure I'll put something together. Meanwhile, like the Kansas City Royals, I'll try to keep the line moving:

* SportsMonday: All Bears Must Go.

Let the fire sale begin.

* TrackNotes Extra: American Pharoah Goes Out Grandly.

They'll have to train him not to run.

Now with an important news update!
