The Weekend Desk Report

Have a great weekend, everyone. If you need us, we'll be in Canada.

Market Update
World share prices tumbled this week due to increased concerns over the impact of Chinese imports on the subprime sector. Analysts note that once a brand has established itself in that market, it can be awfully difficult to shake the trend.

Against the Odds
We're sorry to disappoint any punters out there looking for a line on the Arlington Million. The Beachwood Reporter Weekend Desk Bookmakers is taking the rest of the month off. We're still trying to get our heads around this one.

Head in the Sand
Mine owner and noted climate change skeptic Bob Murray is urging optimism despite unpromising news on Friday. After all, he notes, unless there is absolute scientific consensus on the matter, there's no reason to think anything bad has happened at all.

Auld Lyme Syne
Advisors to President Bush expect that his slow, inexorable transformation into Cook County Board President Todd Stroger will continue apace through the weekend. Meanwhile, aides for Mr. Stroger report his goal of turning himself into George W. Bush is actually well ahead of schedule.

Monster Truck-Up
Despite pressure from public safety groups, White House observers say President Bush will stand firm on his pledge not to raise gasoline taxes until Grave Digger is properly subdued.

Mean Greens
Finally this week, an American company has announced that soon consumers may be able to spy on food suppliers just as easily as food suppliers spy on them. No doubt the CTA's imminent fare hikes will bring about similar transparency.
