Passed to me via email:

"Twelve months, 10 words. Let's say your best friend, a news junkie in withdrawal, just got back from a year in Antarctica and has asked you to summarize this year's headlines in 10 words or less. How will you respond? You might not do better than Merriam-Webster Online's list of the top 10 most looked-up words of 2005. In order of popularity: 1) integrity, 2) refugee, 3) contempt, 4) filibuster, 5) insipid, 6) tsunami, 7) pandemic, 8) conclave, 9) levee, 10) inept."

Any other ideas? And this needn't be just the USA, you know. How would YOU summarize the year's events?

Corruption, fascism, neo-conservative, Constitution, environment, catastrophe, imperialism, military-industrial complex, disbelief...

Well, it's a different ten but the intersections arrive at the same referents somehow...

Breezy, Sneezy, Freezy.

Personal Year -

Near death
Test after test
Speadeagled, cut, repaired
New Life!

In general -

Near death
Lie after lie
Devastated world
Piss on bush.
