Ed. note: As is our holiday tradition, Going Concern is working on a reduced schedule this week, so posts will consist of abbreviated news roundups and perhaps a perfunctory year-end listicle or two, but not much else. If you see any stories worth covering or want to complain about how much you’re working thanks to the ramming through of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, drop us a line at [email protected]. Or, better yet, throw up your questions and missives in Open Items. We’ll be back to full speed on January 2.
