So many events took place this year. I can only name a few, so here goes.

T Martin and George Zimmerman story.
The mysterious death of Whitney Houston.
Benghazi.
President Obama being re-elected.
Colorado Movie Theater Massacre.
Sandy Hook Shootings.
NFL PLayer Suicide.
Statue of Joe Paterno gone.
Hurricane Sandy.
And so much more.............

Which story do you think was the biggest one of the year.

I think that Obama's reelection would clearly be #1, but I think a close second would be Sandy. Third would be Trayvon Martin. Fourth Sandy Hook. Fifth Benghazi.

None of these are important in a global context, except maybe the black dude who was elected.

Well, we heard somewhere there was an Olymics or something like that, and there's that Malala Yousafzaibut story, but mostly, it's all about us.

I suppose the civil war in Syria was probably the biggest global news story overall, followed by the Presidential election in the US.

Israel"s attack on Gaza, the various gun masacres in America, the London Olympics and Hurricane Sandy were also big news worldwide.

If it doesn't happen in America, it isn't important.

So you are saying that the Olympics were not important.

The worst Olympic opening ceremony of all time should count for something, it's a story worth noting at least.

Yea, although disastrous civil war plauged Syria, which included massacres of children, nothing eclipses my damn Patient being protected!

Interesting theory here.
