The Year in Lists: 2018

Paying Attention:

Well, here it is, the end of the year and after the Crush of Christmas, we now flow into the end-of-the-year lists that provide, in shorthand, an overview of what happened during the year, as in “Year’s 10 Best Movies” or “2018’s 5 Best New Salad Dressings.” Always compelling new stuff and to save you from the PITA that comes from looking up all these lists on your own, the Perception Engineering and Media Bunker staff have done the hard clicking for you. Please find below, the year 2018, as defined by lists; above, of course, leading off this post, is the Associated Press review of their biggest stories of the year. New lists will be added on a regular basis. Read our lists and be the most informed person in the room on what actually happened in a tumultuous, wild, unpredictable, incredible, outrageous, ground-breaking year.

And…get ready for more of the same in 2019.

Happy New Year
