Here we are folks, just a day before the end of the world if you believe the Mayans and a weekend before Christmas Eve. For those of you on the Hill, including me, you may be spending your holiday eating turkey and playing board games on Capitol Hill if this fiscal cliff isn’t resolved, so I present you with a weekend full of merriment should you be released from work. Good luck and Merry Christmas/Festivus/Kwanzaa to all!
