How weird a year was it? Here's how weird:
# O.J. actually got convicted of something.
# Gasoline hit $4 a gallon -- and those were the good times.
# On several occasions, "Saturday Night Live" was funny.
# There were a few days there in October when you could not completely rule out the possibility that the next Treasury secretary would be Joe the Plumber.
# Finally, and most weirdly, for the first time in history, the voters elected a president who -- despite the skeptics who said such a thing would never happen in the United States-- was neither a Bush nor a Clinton.
As they say, read the whole thing.
Dave Barry is a God. Which, thinking about it, would make a good name for a rock band.
And enjoy your New Year's festivities safely. It's gonna be boring out here on the prairie, but that's the way uh huh uh huh I like it. Oh Yeah.
