I'm not sure about whether I'm going to stick with this item...it seemed sort of nice when there was not much going on, but with all the major events in the world this winter and spring, it just doesn't quite feel necessary, and I notice that it hasn't drawn a lot of comments lately, presumably because there's nothing much to say.
But at any rate its here this week. Let's see...Libya again, the rest of the Middle East again. Why don't people talk about Ivory Coast in the context of Egypt, Libya, and the others? Honest question: I'm no expert on that part of the world, and I do realize that Ivory Coast isn't quite in the same neighborhood, so perhaps it really isn't connected in any way, but I do wonder about it.
Of course, the events in Japan are important.
And then we have Wisconsin. I think I've said a couple of times that I think its importance is a bit overhyped, but that's not to say that it doesn't matter at all.
All that, and none of it in Washington. I'll leave the rest to comments: what do you think mattered this week?
