Top 10s of 2006: One more for the road

The first issue of the new year is where you traditionally find all of the Chronicle writers' lists of the Top 10 events/projects/stories of the preceding year, but this year sees a little Top 10 spillover into the second issue as one very important list didn't make it into last week's edition, thanks to a little editorial ineptitude. (D'oh!) Please cut it out and keep it with the rest of last week's lists. – Robert Faires
