That can be a hard call. There are obvious choices that land loudly in the headlines: Miners in Chile, the signing of Obamacare. There are incremental stories, like the chronically high jobless rate or the crumbling euro. And we are, in Afghanistan, approaching the second decade of the longest war we've ever fought. So what was the most important story and why? And thanks.

That Ray 76 missed out not only on "Man of the year" but the "Peace Prize" for

the 76th year in succession , was not only the news story of the year but the

"Catastrostroke of 2010". wink rolleyes

But if you want a serious answer ,that we are still fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Is the obscenity of 2010.

Since this is an International site, I would choose a story that affects all of us...the overspending of the governments that has led to political and economic instability in Eurpoe and the Americas, and in turn is or will be adverely affecting all of our countries. As can already been seen, economic instability leads to social instability.

I think there has been simply too many tragic events and miraculous ones in 2010 to pick just one so I'll just add one to the list that bothered me to no extent. The BP oil well.

Yes, there are soooo many worthy stories it is very difficult to pick just one so I will name my top 3:

1.The miners being freed from a pit in Chile would have to be my top one as it was such an amazing miracle

2.By way of contrast: the terrible disaster and tragedy in a mining New Zealand is obvious.

3 The Chinese (?) human rights activist (girl) who was freed from prison after being imprisoned for speaking out against her government's human rights abuses
