The Weekend Desk Report

It may be a short week for you, but the Weekend Desk never knocks off early for a holiday.

Guantana-Maybe
In what is largely seen as a blow to current Bush administration policy, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear the appeal of several Guantanamo Bay inmates challenging the legality of their confinement. Naturally, we have responded by opening the Beachwood Reporter Weekend Desk betting window, but wagering has been surprisingly flat. Here are the latest odds that the Justices will:

Find in favor of the administration: 5/4
Wrap their anti-civil rights decision in the language of noble struggle: 5/4
Insult your intelligence: 5/4

Maine Squeeze
Apparently worn down by months of hurt feelings and hurtful behavior, President Bush has agreed to take Vladimir Putin home to meet his parents. Enjoy the lobster dinners while you can, Dima. Someday Gordon won't be too busy to take George's calls and then you'll be right back at Crawford again.

Law and Horder
Lawyers for accused long-haul confrontationist Lisa Nowak have found a novel defense for their client. Rather than being a freak who tore ass across the country wearing a diaper, they contend she is a freak who tore ass across the country in a car that hadn't been cleaned in 18 months while apparently soiling herself. We can't wait to hear their explanation for the pepper spray, wig, BB gun and folding knife.

Unsteady Rests the Jaw...
In other news, duh.

Northern Exposed
Canada took another small, inexorable step toward becoming America this week. But don't worry. They won't notice.

Barrels of Laughs
Finally this week, we don't know for sure, but we're willing to bet when the city decides to make these mandatory, they'll be overpriced and blue.
