ECONOMY: Gas prices hit 3 dollars a gallon
This part for me is a no brainer.  When gas hits 3 dollars a gallon, you have a major problem.

INTL: Iraq War
Again, a no-brainer.  Iraq dominated the news and we have over 2100 deaths.  Thank goodness for troop reductions.

NATIONAL: Terri Schiavo

CHANGES: Patriot Act extended

OP: -null-

DISASTERS: Hurricane Katrina

ODD: Michael Jackson
Do I need to say more?

OTHER: MLB Steroid scandal—changed the way we view an innocent looking sport

I like the topic, but how about we stick to the defined categories? Also, why isn't anyone using the category prefixes?

Yeah, will do so. And since people don't really come to this subforum all that much, do you want to move it to C+T and make it more broad?

ECONOMY: It's rather hilarious; the US Fed rejoiced at learning the economy grew 3.7-8% this year. Too bad they didn't account for the 4.2% inflation in prices eh?

POLITICS:

INTL: The jap's economy finally budged and grew a little bit, after over a decade of economic staggeration.

NATIONAL:

CHANGES:

OP:

DISASTERS: Rita; it truly proved that Katrina wasn't just something that never happens.

ODD:

OTHER:

I'll add more as I see more.
