When Garry Trudeau used the phrase "a gallstone of a decade" in Doonesbury, he was referring to the 70's, but I think this past decade fulfills that description much more accurately: the best thing you can say about it is that it passed.
It was "The Aughts", a decade in which a lot of things didn't get done that 'ought' to have been and waaaay too many things were done that shouldn't had oughta. All right, move along, nothing to see here...
A salute to the New Year to kick off the first I.W.H. of 2010.
