Not much question here, right? Libya and Japan. Beyond that, well, the other events in the Middle East.
By the way...if I had to guess -- and it's just a guess, nothing more -- I'd guess that Libya winds up a lot less important than this week's headlines would indicate. Not that it isn't important, but I just think it might be on the overhyped side.
For a second guess, I'm very much on the side of those who suspect that (whatever the merits) the US nuclear power industry is now dead for another generation.
What else? I don't know that it mattered a lot, but the House vote on leaving Afghanistan was certainly interesting. There was also a three week delay for government shutdown...I'm pretty confident that the House vote on NPR goes in the "didn't matter" category.
OK, that's what I have. What do you think mattered this week?
