The Year In Review

By Dave Barry

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.

Boring is beautiful, I have seen the most exciting things and all I wanted to do was be there when it was over... Have a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Jeffro...boring works for me too. Last night we went to sleep.
On time.
Seemed like a plan at the time.
