Some thoughts about 2011

I'm not big on predictions, mostly because people make ambiguous ones that are difficult to judge.  So here's my attempt at a handful of predictions for 2011 that should be easily distinguishable with a yes or no answer:

1. The Supreme Court will reverse the Ninth Circuit in Wal-Mart v. Dukes.

2. Judge Roger Vinson of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida will find the health care reform law to be unconstitutional.

3. The FCC will approve new net neutrality rules (that will probably happen in the next week or so), but the federal courts will find that this oversteps their authority (again).

4. At least one politician (state legislator or above) will resign when a video of their misconduct goes viral.

5. North Korea's Kim Jong-il will die and his son, Kim Jong-un, will take over.

6. At least one Philadelphia sports team will make it to the Super Bowl, NHL Finals, or World Series.

7. Patriots' QB Tom Brady will win the NFL MVP and Eagles' QB Michael Vick will finish second.

8. Baltimore (BWI) will record less than 30 inches of snowfall this winter (please)

9. I will get accepted to law school (please) and actually go this time!

10. Stuxnet's creator(s) will be revealed (total guess).

And one more for the road that I am most certain of:

DEFCON19 will be canceled.
