Whats the Story of the Year?
 
What would you consider to be the story of the year?

Is it the Aruba Girl, Dungys Kid, Katrina, or is it a story that happened to you this year that us OOTers would be amazed/shocked/surpised about that could contend with the national or international news.

Dungys kid no one cares about outside of Football or Sports nuts

It has to be Katrina on so many levels

From a global point of view it's easily the Tsumani. Over 200,000 dead, people affected across the world (huge tourist destinations etc.) and incredible detrimental impacts on the region for years or even decades to come.

Nationally, Katrina, not close. Tsunami coverage came and went fast.

Terri Schiavo probably for random noob personal life crisis individual nobody-gives-a-[censored] story.

Pope obviously for major death.

That we won the war in Iraq. Or was that declared last year?

MrTrik 12-30-2005 01:02 PM

Re: Whats the Story of the Year?
 
I'd say Katrina. I would have said the Tsunami except Bitter was right ... that was last year.

Maybe the Tsunami was in 2004 - but its toll reigned into 2005!

Add Katrina/Rita + Florida being slammed...

Kashmir earthquake as well.

Then the only story of 2005 is the Unpreparedness of a Natural Disaster and the human toll accompanied with it.

The more people we have on this planet the more are going to have to be uprooted because of natural phenomena...

Lets not see a meteor landing in North America in 2006!

And have a Xeppi Gnu Yeah!!!!!

I'd have to say Mother Nature 1 - Earthlings 0 as the story of the year.

Re: Whats the Story of the Year?

Although these are not the stories of the year, these are monumental elections (aswell as Venezueala from a couple years ago) in Latin America.

In no way shape or form am I saying its the story of the year, I was giving random examples of what I was talking about, and that came to mind...

But the one story more than any that needed pictures of the event is the Panthers Cheerleaders story

In the defense of humans, we've been sticking it to mother nature for quite some time now, beatch. Name one other species that can adapt his enviroment to his needs. (Beavers don't count)

Story of the year, it's not the Aruba girl or any other of that Greta Van Susteren crap like Michael Jackson, because nothing happened out of those.

Definitely Katrina, because it basically destroyed a fairly major American city with relatively large numbers of casualties, as well as the ensuing controversy over the handling of the crisis by the federal government.

I hate to break it to you, but huge earthquakes in Kashmir, or Turkey, or even Japan are not major news in this USA centric world (or at least my world). You can argue that they should be, but they aren't.

I'm from Louisiana, and Katrina/Rita no doubt here. It's affected so much here, even in a city that was hardly hit (Lafayette).
