This was the year that was

December 3, 2011

The most powerful photos of 2011

It’s hard to believe all of it happened just this year:

Japanese tsunami,
Osama Bin Laden killed (and the unseemly celebrations that followed)
Same-sex marriage in New York
Riots, Earthquakes, and whatever the hell Uganda is up to now
Giant Blizzard the first of many giant storms
The shooting on Utoya island
Phoenix vanished from view under giant dust storm
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, gone. Finally. At last. Good riddance you monstrous injustice of a law.
Arab Spring: Good riddance Gadaffi, Mubarak
Steve Jobs not responding, force quit
Lots and lots of police in full armor bravely protecting us from unarmed protesters.
A starving child, said to have since made a full recovery.  Sorry, I doubt it.  Childhood is brain-development time.

And I still have no idea who Amy Winehouse was.

I would have added an image of Gabby Gifford on her feet again.  What would you add?

    The self-immolation of Buddhist monks in Tibet, for the cause of freedom of speech and religious belief. Not to be confused with the self-immolation of Cain & Perry for a lost cause.

    The downgrade of US bonds, and near default. Final proof, as far as I’m concerned, that the Republican is not interested in what’s best for the country, and should not be taken seriously.
