NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It's difficult -- and feels inappropriate -- to talk about the stock market, lament the NHL lockout or whine because The Killers postponed the Friday night concert at MSG I was supposed to attend given what happened in Connecticut.Such meaningless small potatoes, man. But what do you do? In the general flow of life, things like stocks, sports and music -- while they serve a few practical and righteous purposes -- exist for times like these. When you cannot make sense of the serious, of the tragic, of reality, you turn to the inane crap that you know really doesn't matter when perspective knocks you upside the head. So, here it goes. Three positive, uplifting stories -- pertaining to Yahoo! ( YHOO), Apple ( AAPL) and the fiscal cliff -- that, if there's any justice in this crazy world, will unfold, like storybook stories, in 2013.
