9 Things That Happened This Week That Were More Important Than Starbucks Cups

Often as bloggers we cover popular current events and controversies of the week. Sometimes those events are a bit more trivial than others and the volume of their voice stifles some of the really important things that are happening. It’s not unusual for us to read comments that say, “Shut up about this already!”
