2011 - bad year for being a dictator
Man of the year was the protester, but woman of the year must be mother nature. A sequence of Queensland floods, then Yasi, then the Christchurch earthquake then the Japanese tsunami. Not to mention the Asian floods, and an unseasonal Phillippine typhoon in the mix. Sovereign debt crises made Australia's economic problems look like a family picnic. The Arab spring ground on the whole year just like the Murray river floods. Yet protesters started to Occupy western democracies, Perhaps not realizing that Democracy is as good as it gets. And the Murray Darling Process assumed a state of lack of water, when the issue is variability, not a low average availability.
