***Note: DO NOT write an essay in the comments. Pick one event (there are lots!) and explain how you think it answers the question. Limit yourself to one idea per comment, and feel free to return to the conversation after a few hours or a few days. Dialogue is always welcome, but please leave room for everyone to respond!
