Top 10 Stories of 2010

It’s appropriate today to put on my old reporter’s hat and consider the year that was. I think that was one of the things that I enjoyed about newspapers was looking back on the year, and reading some of the year-end articles that The Associated Press would put out this week.

This year was an interesting one in which several news stories would easily make No. 1 overall in a normal year. But, 2010 is and was not a normal year.

So, from the home office in Wilmore, Ky., here are my thoughts on the top 10 news stories of 2010.

10 – Elena Kagan Confirmed as Supreme Court Associate Justice.

9 – Arizona Enacts Controversial Illegal Immigration Law.

8 – Polish Government Crippled Due to April Plane Crash Killing President, 96 Others

7 – Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell Overturned.

6 – January Earthquake in Haiti Kills 220,000.

5 – Chilean Miners Rescued After Almost 70.

4 – WikiLeaks Releases Several U.S. Government Secrets

3 – Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Causes Havoc Throughout Spring
