What was the biggest industry story of 2008?

I join you for the last "Talk..." of 2008. John and I have truly enjoyed having this avenue for dialog with you this year. This little box is honestly one of our favorite weekly tasks because it forces us to come up with topics of conversation that are pertinent to our industry. And usually we can get enough of you fired up to give us some good feedback. Keep those responses coming in 2009. It's going to be an interesting year for our industry—for all industries—so keep checking in to see what your peers are saying about whatever it is we're "Talk"-ing about.

The most important industry news story of 2008 was:
Almost weekly plant closings and layoffs
Company bankruptcies and complete closures
Pending changes in Energy Star criteria
Republic workers go out making noise

Our final question for the year is a bit of a tradition--we'd like to get your opinion on the most important industry news stories of the past year. Take a peek at my list to place your vote, but feel free to weigh in with other news stories you feel had a significant impact on the window and door industry this year.

Have a great holiday. John and I will be back to "Talk..." with you in 2009.
