Top news for Year 2008

How time flies! Year 2008 is coming to an end in just 6 weeks time.

At the end of the year, I would always recollect what are the top news for that particular year (see my post on 31 Dec 07 for the top news of that year).

Barring any shocking or breaking news for the coming 6 weeks till the end of the year, my top 4 choices (ranked in order) FOR SINGAPORE, (why 4 and not 3? These 4 are the ones what I could think of, so far and immediately) and taking into account both local and international dimensions, are:

1) Economic crisis (this must be unanimously the top news for Singapore and all countries!)
2)The escape of Mas Selamat
3) White tiger at our beloved zoo turned killer
4) Singapore's hosting of F1

For the top new FOR THE WORLD, it must be unanimously the election of Barrack Obama as the first Black US President who promises change for the world.

Feel free to comment if you think these are not the top news and to share your pick of the top news for Singapore for this year!

From a view very far away from Singapore I would say that 1 is big. Never heard of 2 and 3 but they sound exciting. Singapore F1-race looked spectacular at night, let´s just hope that it wasn´t the last one. I think enough has been said about Obama.

Hi Chrome,

Mas Selamat is an exceedingly dangerous TERRORIST, Singapore's most wanted man.

You may refer to my blog post on 29 Feb 08 for more news on him:
