Editor’s note: Flatland is counting down our top 10 stories of the year on weekdays between Dec. 21, 2020 and Jan. 1, 2021. The stories were selected based on input from both readers and Flatland editorial staff. First, we compiled a list of the 20 stories that generated the most readership during the year. Then, members of our editorial staff ranked their 10 favorites from among the stories on the readership list.
