On Point's Best Diaries of 2004

photo2004 was a year dominated by the presidential election, from the New Hampshire primary in January to President Bush's victory in November.

Also in the news in 2004 was the war in Iraq, where shocking abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib surfaced in the spring, and the U.S. death toll passed 1,000 in the fall.

It was a year that saw Martha Stewart go to prison, gays and lesbians head to wedding chapels, and four major hurricanes visit Florida.

Hear about some of the biggest stories of 2004 as seen through the eyes of On Point's radio diarists.
