Big stories this year?

This is off topic, but it seems to be the time of year for reflection so I thought I'd ask anyway. What were some of the news stories, events and issues that affected you this year - whether it be physically, emotionally, financially or otherwise?

I think that Health Care Reform has to be one of the biggest issues in the US this year, obviously affecting everyone differently. (And I can hope that it will affect me in a positive financial way!)

The whole TSA / search policy has become an enormous issue over the past few weeks too. It doesn't affect me that much since I only fly a few times each year usually. I don't mind the body scan, but it's such a big and real issue to many people. I see it changing the way many travel.

What do you see as the big stories this year? What has affected you?

I agree that health care reform is big this year. It doesn't really affect me personally because I don't live in the US, but I think it's an important step for my friends and family back home.
