This is that time of year when these stories are obligatory.
Let’s see,we had the Tucson tragedy, the Japanese earthquake/tsunami/nuclear accident/Godzilla invasion, leadership changes in Egypt, Libya and North Korea, a royal wedding, a burial at sea, a disappointing non-candidacy, a drop in our nation’s credit rating, a pretty good World Series, a shocking acquittal and a big open-air slumber party.
That was all off the top of my head. What did I miss?
What do YOU think the biggest story of the year is/was?
What was a story but shouldn’t have been? What should have been a story but wasn’t?
On December 31, 1976 if you had asked people across the nation what were the most significant events of that year, how many would have mentioned the founding of Apple Computer? 100 years from now when people look back at 2011, what will they say the most significant events of this year were?
