Top Things I've Forgotten This Year

Seriously, with all of the end of the year best-of lists floating around these days, you'd think my own memory for the aught-seven that was would be a little more refreshed.

I've committed myself to writing a "Top 5 Strangest/Most Interesting Madison Related Events" list for dane101, and I'm worried that my poor, swiss cheese-like memory may not be up to the task. It's like everything prior to the ACT ride in August has been clouded over by all of the bike training I was doing.

Anyway, I realize that I don't have the highest readership ever, but I thought I'd go out on a limb and ask--what Madison related events/people/whatever stand out the most to you from this year? And no, I'm not asking you to make my list for me. I'll figure that out, one way or another, even if it ends up just being a list of what parts of my body all this biking has been effecting most, for better or for worse. I'm just curious about what I've forgotten, and what was notable to other people. It's a good way to get out of my own head now and again.

The comments section is yours for the memory lane-ing!

In the meantime, it's time to start hitting the whatever that herb that's supposed to help improve memory is called.

Eli Judge. Wins an "upset" election. Praise from across student press. First "new alder" to pass anything at the Madison City Council. Widely considered one of the most popular "campus figures" at UW. On a more dramatic level, he can be compared to the phoenix that rose from the ashes after the crushing defeat Fair Wisconsin and his Students for a Fair Wisconsin suffered just months prior to his city council run.

Other UW issues, obvious would include Wiley stepping down (too soon), campus assaults, and Horowitz was certainly interesting. Not sure if this all fits the topic.

CB: they do fit the topic, and help refresh my memory about a few things. Thanks!
