Most Disappointing Failure In The Past Year

1st Place: Scott Walker

2nd Place: Losing the rail system

3rd Place: Borders

It was a big year for Scott Walker. He won an election. He made national news by changing our highly regarded education system. He turned down millions for progressive transportation. He changed voting regulations and cut all kinds of funding. And you hated every second of it. He won this one by a long shot, with no contenders coming even a little close. And what did come in second, is a high-speed rail system that he was responsible for the failing of. The Valley’s beloved bookstore Borders went bankrupt as a chain (about 400 stores), and officially closed in September. On an up note, we’re getting a Books-A-Million as a replacement. — AD
