The Weekend Desk Report

Happy New Year, everyone. Welcome to 2013, the Year of the Respiratory Flu.

Market Update
Now that we've technically survived going over the fiscal cliff, it's time to choose the apocalyptic nickname for the next impending budgetary disaster. Would you rather:

1. Be locked out of the fiscal season;

2. Be jilted at the fiscal altar;

3. Or be crushed by the fiscal boredom?

Justice Delayed
Supporters of marriage equality will have to wait a little longer for a vote in Illinois. Meanwhile, supporters of California's Proposition 8 may start to wonder what exactly they're defending.

Bear Up
The list of possible replacements for Lovie Smith continues to grow as Phil Emery plans to interview Joe DeCamillis this weekend. DeCamillis reportedly knows how to deal with a grade A pain in the neck, which bodes well as the Bears apparently come with a grade A pain in the ass.

Touchdown Grievous
Finally this week, if professional football proves too depressing, you could always set your sights on the BCS Championship Game. That's just good, clean fun, right? It's not like someone got killed or anyth . . . oh wait . . .
