I do like the order in which you have them. I would displace MJ's death from the top 10 though. John Paul's death had a bigger impact on the world IMO. The election of Benedict- yes important, but not as great as the death of the prior Pope. Now if Benedict was Jewish- OK that would move him up a few notches. I'd probably replace # 6 and #8 with the Tsunami and.... I'll have to get back to you on this.
