Friday Feature: Riding the Tiger Off a Cliff

Unidentified aids deliver pizzas to House Democrats during a late night planning session, 1/1/2013. (Cropped photo from Reuters, featured in MSN PHOTOblog.)

Well, for now, we've avoided cascading off the great "Fiscal Cliff" of 2012/2013. Time will tell if the 11th- (13th?) hour deal will have lasting effects on the state of the economy, or of congressional gridlock, in general. (Prospects aren't looking so good.)

There is one thing we know for sure: at least part of the brainpower stopping us from careening off the cliff was fueled by America's favorite late-night food: pizza. Stacks and stacks of delicious lukewarm delivery pizza.

Stay tuned! Every Friday we'll highlight an interesting item from presidential history.
