Here is the 10th annual collection of Salt Lake Tribune Dream Headlines, in which we ask readers to suggest headlines that they might see in the year ahead. Some contain hope. Others humor. A few, cynicism. It was that kind of year.
Our favorite Dream Headlines appear below, with the names of the contributors attached. More of the many excellent contributions sent in by Tribune readers can be enjoyed on The State of the Debate blog (http://www.sltrib.com/blogs/debate). We hope you enjoy them all as much as we did. Our thanks to all who offered their ideas.
Happy New Year!
