As 2011 draws to a close, year-end lists run rampant across the Internet. There are lists for the best movies, the best songs, the best novels, the biggest news stories, the most-watched YouTube videos -- the list goes on and on.
Well, we here at NCR wanted in on the action, too. The editorial staff has chosen its person of the year, who will be announced in the Jan. 6-19 print edition, but we wanted your input for the top news story.
Catholic News Service named the switch to the new Roman missal its top news story. The Religion Newswriters Association said it was the death of Osama bin Laden.
