Well, I hear that there were a few elections held...I suspect there's something to be had in that.
And there's the Fed actions, and a relatively good jobs report (note: still no liberal hack economists to tell us that the economy is now booming because of the brilliant policies from Barack Obama).
So I guess one could dig through the big news for some good tidbits (redistricting? State props? Iowa judges?), or find the items that were buried by the bigger stuff.
You know what I think mattered: the Giants won the World Series!
Oh, and speaking of sports, I have no idea whether she'll win today, but whether she does or not, Zenyatta has been amazing. There aren't enough adjectives. And if she actually can win back-to-back Classics and retire 20 for 20....well, I can't think of any similar achievement in any sport over the last forty years. I know practically none of you are interested in horse racing, but if you want to see a really special horse, you might want to flip over to ESPN this afternoon.
At any rate: what do you think mattered this week?
