The Weekend Desk Report

For the first time in a great while, Chicago doesn't have the worst weather in the country. You get out there and enjoy it; we'll keep our eyes on the news.

Market Update
News broke this week that Americans are packing $2.2 trillion in credit card debt. Which is, like, four Iraq wars. Not that we're trying to give anyone ideas or anything.

Beachwood Picks
There's only one show in town this weekend, and that's the Academy Awards. Here are the official Weekend Desk picks for this year's Oscars.

Best Leading Performances
John McCain, There Will Be Blood
Barack Obama, Away From Her

Best Supporting Performances
John Edwards, I'm Not There
Ralph Nader, Into The Wild

Best Picture
No Country For Old Men

Triumvirate Track
It's time again to check in on our favorite terrible threesome. The United States has pledged to intervene to prevent any further atrocities on the part of Paris Hilton. Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan has launched a brazen attack on America's central nervous system. Not to be outdone, Britney Spears has stayed in the news thanks to rare access to her pride and joy. And folks, it's not pretty.

Westward, Ho!
Fresh off a major funding coup, the CTA is poised to colonize DuPage County with its unique brand of congestion reduction. Because, honestly now, what would be a better replacement for the Hillside Strangler than a healthy dose of Doomsday?

Hot to Spot
And finally this week, duh.
