Year Of The Breakdown
FILE - Cloudy skies shroud the Capitol in Washington, Monday morning, Oct. 14, 2013 as Senate Democratic and Republican leaders remained at odds over spending in their last-ditch negotiations to end the government shutdown. At a time when many people say that the political system and societal institutions aren't working, the news in 2013 provided multiple sources of confirmation, both at home and abroad. It was the year when things broke down - or at least it often left many people feeling that way. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
