On a personal level, this decade has been A-OK. Wife, kids, house, new job, advanced education, and so on.
When I sit back and reflect on the last 10-years, particularly on the things that have occurred outside of my control, it seems to be a never-ending string of disasters – both real and imagined.
Enron. 2000 Election. The non-event of Y2K. September 11th. The Columbia Disaster. The Invasion of Iraq. The 2004 Election. Katrina. The Tsunami. The Great Recession.
I would write a Best/Worst of 2009 and/or the Aughts, but I’m just not feeling it. Check my FriendFeed for “* of 2009″ or “* of the decade”. Aside from personal events, I think this is a decade that I’ll be happy to see in the history books.
