The Friday Challenge - 11/7/08

Okay, maybe that was too specific a challenge. As of the deadline — yes, I do pay attention to the deadline once in a while — we have but two entries:

Diary of a Mad Astronaut, by Henry

Until the Bitter End, by Vidad

As always, you're encouraging to read, comment on, and vote for your favorite, or alternatively, to try and snowdog something in after the deadline. We'll announce the winner on Sunday night.

Since last week's challenge was apparently far too specific, for this week's challenge, we're going to go wandering somewhere way off into the vague end of the spectrum. I want you to kick back, relax, put on your blue shirt and your hopechange hat, and imagine this scenario: Today is Friday, November 6, 2009. This week, the whole world has celebrated the one-year anniversary of the election of The Chosen One to the office of the President of the United States of America.

What is going on in the world right now? How has your life changed in the past year? What have been some of the more interesting headlines and news stories you've watched unfold in 2009?

I mean, admit it, that's all you've been thinking about this week anyway. So you may as well get some Friday Challenge mileage out of it...
