Things that need to end as the year does

Here’s a list of things on countdown timelines as 2012 ends:

The Fiscal Cliff: Really? You can’t agree to something you both think is necessary? No wonder no one votes.

The NHL Lockout: Reports state there are only days left before the season will be cancelled outright. We hope none is made. And none the year after. Enjoy playing yourself, or watching deserving junior and university teams.

Pussy Riot: Let the girls go. And then work on Khodorovsky.

December 17th publication date!
