Click for more 2017 End of the Year Lists
Today we’re looking back on a glorious year of accurate and honest Also.Also.Also headlines. It’s been 12 months of so much insanity, it was hard to figure out what to highlight, what to slowly back away from, and what to cry about. Sometimes — especially early in the year, as I wasn’t as practiced and slightly numbed — it was impossible to pull out just one story or even one cohesive thought beyond AAAAAAAAAAAAAYYAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHH??! But damn it, I sure did try.
Here are the 24 headlines I felt most passionately about this year!
