The year 2011 was a tumultuous one. Osama bin Laden was killed. The space shuttle lifted off for its final mission of the 30-year program. Broadcasters began filing applications for renewal of their licenses for an eight-year term. Well, time’s up: the cycle began all over again on June 1.

This isn’t 2011 all over again.
