I have a list for WOTY, as usual.  I was wondering this morning as I picked
up my regular newspapers if we should add _massacre_ to the list of
candidates for WOTY.  Is WOTY to be the word for which 2012 is remembered or
the word that people in 2012 were obsessed with?  In the case of the former
it may be _massacre_.  In the case of the latter it may be _fiscal cliff_.
