President Supports Gay Marriage In Illinois
President Obama supports a plan to legalize gay marriage in Illinois. In fact, a White House spokesperson says the president would vote in favor of the measure if he were still a member of the Illinois Senate. The proposal will come up for a vote this week when the Senate returns to Springfield. Democratic leaders believe they have enough support to pass the bill and send it to the House. If the House also passes the plan, and if Governor Quinn signs it, Illinois will become the tenth state in the nation to give same-sex couples the right to marry.

New Year's Advice To Illinois: Keep Goals Secret
Experts say when it comes to making "New Year's resolutions" it's best to keep them to yourself. With Illinois residents ready to ring-in 2013, the journal "Scientific American" studied why most people don't actually achieve their resolutions every New Year - whether it's quitting smoking or finally organizing that messy garage. They say proclaiming your goals for the new year gives a "premature sense of completeness" - meaning it's easier to give up and you essentially undermine your own attempt at the start. So experts say when someone asks you today what your New Year's resolutions are, tell them sorry, you don't have any.
