The Last Word’s year in review


It was the best of times, it was the worst… Oh, wait. That’s been done.

So… 2013 and The Last Word. We had an inauguration, a government shutdown, a fake filibuster, and a real filibuster. We saw Boston survive a bombing.  We watched a man be acquitted of killing an unarmed teenage boy.
