Christmas 2.0

The great Christmas do-over: After the weakest sales figures since the crash of 2008, the nation's retailers hope things pick up as bargain-hunters descend on the malls in the days after Christmsas.

So remember, there are only nine shopping days until a very special Mulligan Christmas gift exchange Jan. 5.

Groovin' up slowly: Starbucks workers in Washington, D.C. will write "Come Together" on cups this week to encourage politicians to reach a compromise on the "fiscal cliff."

On coffee cups sold to compromise-averse tea party congressmen, Starbucks workers will write, "Got to be a joker. He just do what he please."

Dogs gone wild: Florida's tourism industry is marketing the state as a dog-friendly destination for folks who just can't bring themselves to leave Fido at the kennel.

If that seems a bit odd, consider that even the most unruly dog is far better behaved than the typical college kid on spring break in Daytona Beach.
