The Weekend Desk Report

The forecast this weekend? Sunny with a high of cynicism.

Market Update
When it comes to closing gaping budgetary gaps, you can take your pick: one giant looming fiscal cliff or lots of little, individual fiscal cliffs.

Spoiled
We're being reductive here, of course. Around these parts, we're positively spoiled for choice. Most of the alternatives aren't particularly inspiring, but still . . .

Chartered
Don't worry if you can't decide. Give it enough time and someone will make the choice for you.

Transported
Not happy with any of these choices? Relax. You could always just drive.
