The year almost behind us

I’m starting to gather material for my annual Year in Review cartoons, and as always, your suggestions for memorable, and memorably stupid, highlights of the year are eagerly solicited. (Last year’s installments are here and here, to give you a sense of the sort of thing I’m after.) If I use your contribution, I’ll send you a signed print of the cartoon; in the event of multiple submissions of the same item, first one in gets it. Email to tom-dot-tomorrow-at-gmail-dot-com, and use the subject line “Year in Review”.
