    By top news story, do you mean what we believe was the most important topic to us, or the topic which was covered the most by the media?

    I made my decision according to what the most important one to me was..."The Katrina Disaster and its aftermath!"

    I would have to concur. Katrina wins by a landslide.

    Katrina & Aftermath by far was the top story of 2005!

    Given everything else, the Schiavo saga is basically irrelevant.

    Not by me...but Katrina affected alot more lives, that should NOT have been lost! [​IMG]

    I think once "Congress" got a hold of the possible political benefits and stuck their nose in it, people have had a tendency to kind of put that tragic situation on the back burner...leave it to our "elected" leaders to mess this up to!

    Had to go with 2 things that directly affected me.

    Katrina and Gas Prices.

    And 1 that changed 200 years worth of law in this country and makes us look even more like the USSR.

    The Eminent Domain case.

    Its not irrelevant to everyone. I havent forgotten. I saw a 10 year old arrested for trespassing trying to give her a glass of water.

    In the Katrina aftermath, I saw Sean Penn almost sink a boat filled with PR people trying to 'save' someone.
