One more week down, and some strong candidates for Headline of the Year. For the TFers, there's currently an active voting thread for Headline of the Year candidates in TFD for April 2011. For those TFers who hadn't noticed the previous Headline of the Year preliminaries, they can be found here:

December * January * February * March
