It ended up being much ado about nothing, and the ones most likely to benefit? The Mayans — well-played, Mayans. Well-played.
December 21, 2012 is over and if you’re reading this, you already are aware the world has not ended. Certainly it’s chilly outside, we survived Friday's rain, there’s still Christmas shopping and wrapping to be done. If this were a movie, we could call it Apocalypse How? In short, it was the worst Armageddon, ever — well, except when the real one comes. That probably would be worse.

But with all this hubbub over the Mayan 2012 prophecy, we have to ask: How would you spend your last day in Middletown, if you knew the world was coming to an end?
