The Weekend Desk Report

We'll keep our eyes on the news. You just concentrate on getting that friggin' Air Supply Burger ad out of your head once and for all.

Market Update
President Bush this week acknowledged some "troubling signs," but refused to discuss an economic recession. So to clarify:
Economy = Troubled, but not recessed
Britney = Troubled, but not depressed
Amy = Troubled, but not a mess

Back to Crack
Speaking of Amy Winehouse, she has apparently captured the attention of EPA deputy administrator Marcus Peacock. While expressing concern and frustration for the singer's well-documented decline, Peacock also noted that sometimes pumping things full of poison is exactly what causes such great works of beauty. Suffer for your art, right?

Anagram of the Week

French Dip
French President Nicolas Sarkozy chose the perfect time to tie the knot with his girlfriend of three months. After all, it's hardly the biggest shotgun wedding of the week.

Prop Bet of the Week
We're offering 5/1 odds that Phil Simms and Boomer Esiason will eventually become the same person.

Super Blue Sunday
You know, sometimes there's not a whole lot we can add.

Pay It Forward
Finally, we'd like to thank venerable Pennsylvania senator Arlen Specter for writing a couple of weeks' worth of column for us. We could use the vacation.


Programming Note: Steve Rhodes will appear on Fox Chicago Sunday (Fox-32, 7:30 a.m.) to discuss a few of the local races up for grabs in Tuesday's primary.
