    I find it kind of offensive, and I don’t know why, not yet, because I haven’t really parsed my feelings, that only one of the people mentioned the Tsunami and the Fukushima meltdown as the most important event of 2011, when I don’t see how any other event could have superceded it, not with the amount of lives that were lost and the damage to the environment. It was a quasi-Apocalyptic catastrophe, and all these people can think to mention is Occupy Wall Street? How self-serving, and how myopic.
