End of the decade, part 1

So we're nearing the end of 2009, which while not technically true is also the end of The Decade. Whatever--the sooner we bring this decade to a close, the better.

Here's the thing: it has been a terrible 10 years. Miserable. Awful. There is not much, from a reasonable American's POV, to suggest otherwise. From the largest terrorist attack in the history of the nation, to Katrina, to the collapse of the financial system (which, to those of you non-Americans, is called--somewhat optimistically--"capitalism"), it's been a dreadful 10 year stretch.

But hey, at least I'm American and not Icelandic, because, shit, they don't even have a country anymore.

The Boston Globe has some nice pics up documenting this single year of the end of the decade. I don't think they do it justice, but whatev.
