Get the week started with a quick look at five stories to know about:
1. Health exchange deadline: Today is the deadline to enroll in the federal health insurance exchange for coverage that begins Jan. 1. Enrollment continues through March 31, but picking a plan on healthcare.gov after 11:59 p.m. today means coverage won't start until Feb. 1.
2. Center City pickpockets: Shoppers are flocking to Center City restaurants and coffee shoppers amid the hustle and bustle of the holiday season -- and pickpockets are joining them. The busy holiday season gives pickpockets plenty of prime targets, police say: distracted customers.
3. Mob figure in court: Reputed South Philadelphia mob associate Ronald Galati is scheduled to appear in court today for a bail hearing on charges of attempted murder, solicitation of murder and retaliation and intimidation of a witness or victim. The city of Philadelphia cut its contract with Galati's auto-body shop (which had raked in $1.2 million from the city since 2011) last week, after news reports surfaced about the contract and Galati's alleged insurance fraud and involvement in a triple murder-for-hire case.
