The annual "Naughty & Nice" lists are out from the Citizen Hotel, with the Maloofs chided for misbehaving and the late Sacramento Bee columnist Rex Babin remembered on the good side of Santa's ledger.
The lists are displayed in the window of the hotel at 926 J Street. Amy Dempster, director of sales and marketing, notes that the hotel tries to continue the downtown tradition of creative holiday window displays - but with a political twist.
Here's the 2012 Naughty & Nice list
Christian Grey -- The main character in this summer's steamy best seller, "50 Shades of Grey" made the list for his naughty red room.
Facebook IPO -- The highly anticipated IPO was a bit of a bummer when it debuted this year.
Lance Armstrong -- After years of fighting doping charges, the allegations were finally too much to overcome and he was stripped of his titles.
Prince Harry -- The naughty prince had a bit too much fun in Vegas this summer.
The Maloofs -- They haven't moved the team, but they haven't help the effort to bring a new arena to Sacramento either.
Fiscal Cliff -- The deadline is looming, how naughty or nice will Congress be this holiday?

Editor's note: The Bee, which has been running original editorial cartoons since 1857, when it first started publishing, announced in November that a new editorial cartoonist had been hired: Jack Ohman, formerly of The Oregonian in Portland, Ore.
