It’s a new year, and maybe things will get better. Honestly, I have hope that things will improve this year even though I’m not a very optimistic person. Why have I suddenly turned into an optimist you might wonder? Actually, I haven’t. Frankly, things are so far gone that they can only get better from here. Let’s review some of last year’s political and social highlights shall we?

Best worst news headlines from 2013 (if the news told the truth):
