The Weekend Desk Report

The world keeps turning, and we spend another weekend chasing it.

Market Update
We saw the sub-prime bubble burst coming a mile away, and we figure the nation could weather the steep price increase for staple foods. But when these guys can't make money? Now, we're fucked. Seriously.

Truth in Advertising
Kellogg, the world's foremost manufacturer of sugary cereals, bowed to pressure from concerned consumer groups this week, agreeing to stop marketing unhealthy food to kids. It's a jolly good thing McDonald's only markets their toys to serious collectors.

This Just In...
Apparently, young people sometimes use the Internet for fun. It's important to spot these frauds, what with a key election looming in the still fairly distant future.

Nobel Update
This year's prize for medicine looks to have been locked up in record time, as yet more researchers independently confirm that women get horny. However, some observers indicate the Nobel committee may yet choose to honor important work done to make overweight people feel even worse about themselves.

In Other News
Ninjas still rock.

Blue States
Finally this week, the state legislature in Massachusetts has voted to keep same-sex marriage legal at least through the next election cycle. This means Massachusetts remains the only freakin' state in the Union more progressive than Colombia. Awesome.
