    2012 brought with it many interesting and significant events for the Hispanic population.  Here are nine we came up with here at Hispanic.com during one of our team meetings.  We'd love to hear what you think.  Did we miss anything?  Or are we on target with our list of top events for the Hispanic population in 2012

    ...the expert and widely praised grilling of the President by Univision anchorpeople.
     
    ...the increase in Hispanic representation in the House of Representatives.
     
    ...the impact (some might call it "revenge") on Romney 's campaign by Hispanic voters from his right wing stance on immigration.
     
    ....the growing acceptance of legalized marijuana use in the USA by states, and the impact it may make on lessening both the flow of Hispanics to jails in the USA, and the strength of the cartels importing the stuff to the USA.

    ...the continuing increase in the number and importance of Hispanic players in Major League Baseball.
