A survey commissioned by data and information company LexisNexis found that Hurricane Katrina was America's most talked-about news story in 2005. According to the results, 97 percent of Americans considered Katrina the most talked-about event at their home or office this past year, followed by the increase in gas prices, the war in Iraq, the Asian tsunami and the London mass transit bombings. Rounding out the top 10 were the Supreme Court nominations, the battle over removing Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, the Aruba disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway, Michael Jackson's child molestation trial, and the breakup of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's marriage.

I am not a genius by any means, but when you tossed out the question about the top news story of 2005 I immediately said "Katrina." I laughed louder and louder as your callers gave their answers. Hey, folks, all you had to do was THINK. Good lord, the hurricane is still in the news daily in one way or another. When asked a question, think of horses NOT zebras!

The top news story? Why not ask an equally important question: How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?
