Happy New Year
Well the 00s were, to quote Garry Trudeau on the 70s, "a kidney stone of a decade." I'm glad they're gone, and I hope that the 10s will be better.
I was going to tot up some of the best-and-worst of the decade, but I'm sure it's been covered by better people, and who wants to hear me go off on Bush the Lesser again? Personally, I don't.
What I really want is to wish you and yours every good thing this next year and decade.
What I really want of the next year, and the decade to come, is that it be better.
Goodnight, and good luck to us in 2010.
