Headlines we didn't see in 2010

On Sunday, we’re presenting readers with a list of interesting but unlikely headlines for 2011. We ran the same exercise a year ago, so I guess it’s our new New Year’s tradition.

You’ll have to wait until Sunday to see what we came up with, but I’ll paste last year’s headline predictions below. As you’ll see, we’re better at coming up with some interesting ideas than predicting the future.

I hope some of you will use the comment function to share some headline ideas of your own.
