Best of IMP’s Blog for 2016

If you made it to midnight on New Year’s Eve, you may have kicked off 2017 by asking (or singing) the traditional first question of the year, “Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?”

That answer may be a resounding “yes” for most of 2016’s news, events, politics and even celebrity deaths (from David Bowie to Carrie Fisher) – but for IMP’s blog, we think that there are ten top posts worth remembering in the coming year.

In the countdown to the most popular, the top 10 posts of 2016 are as follows:
