Six Words on 2010: What Happened?

Monday, December 13th, 2010

By Larry Smith

The Tea Party and the shellacking. Heathcare and the economy. The iPad and ebooks. The BP Gulf disaster and the Chilean miners. Tiger Woods and Lady Gaga. Quite a year. Can you sum it up in six words? That’s the challenge from SMITH and New York Public Radio’s WNYC. Submit your “six on 2010” on WNYC’s blog—we’ll read them all and invite some of you to share your six words (and more) live on The Leonard Lopate Show on Dec. 29.

Post your submission to WNYC by Monday, December 27th, at 3 pm to be considered for the show.
