Last week was marked by breakups and family quarrels.  We had the U.K. taking steps to enact Brexit - signing the divorce papers as it were. And we had the drama on Capitol Hill.  Despite controlling both houses of Congress and the White House, the Republicans weren't able to get their Obamacare replacement smoothly through the House. 

We take a look at both Brexit and the failed health care bill.  We also look ahead to some economic statistics due out this week, including a last look at the economic legacy of the Obama Administration.

Lastly, we take our usual tour of out-of-the-way spots on Wall Street.  It's a theme week this week. Inspired by the discord in both Europe and in Washington, we run out a list of the strangest lawsuits we have seen recently.  We've got lawsuits about alleged fake chicken.  Lawsuits about golf balls.  Lawsuits about drinkable sunscreen.  We've got a case involving the look of cheerleader uniforms that reached the U.S. Supreme Court.  And we have an overtime dispute that turned on the absence of a comma.
