2014 Year in Review - The Good, the Bad, and the Ridiculous (and the Funny)

January 3, 2015   1:54 pm

I missed this in 2013, and this is not a 3-post series as usual. Instead of writing a lot about each topic, I’ll give a short reason I categorized it where I did. Please make no assumptions or conclusions about what I don’t say; the fact that people are so apt to do that should probably make the “Bad” list, but not this year. Since this is a single post, we’ll lead with…

The Good

The Bad

The Ridiculous

The Funny

Continuing his tradition which he didn’t miss last year, Dave Barry has his take on the year’s events.

Here’s to 2015 - let’s hope it’s a good one!

2012 Year in Review - The Funny

January 19, 2013   5:34 am

Dave Barry wrote, as only Dave Barry can, a review of the year we finished up a few weeks ago. (He did it a few weeks ago, too; the delay is my fault.) A sample, from January:

Abroad, an Iranian nuclear scientist is killed in a suspicious bomb blast. Responding to accusations that the United States was behind the killing, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declares “we had nothing to do with it,” adding that if any more Iranian nuclear scientists are killed, “we will have had nothing to do with that, either.”

2011 Year in Review - The Funny

Once again, Dave Barry has done a great job at summarizing our recently deceased year, and his humor is a lot funnier than mine. A sample…

The month’s biggest story is a tragedy in Tucson, where a man opens fire on a meet-and-greet being held by U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The accused shooter turns out to be a mentally unstable loner with a history of drug use; there is no evidence that his actions had anything to do with uncivil political rhetoric. So naturally the blame for the tragedy is immediately placed on: uncivil political rhetoric. This results in a nationwide spasm of civil political rhetoric lasting about two hours, after which everybody returns to uncivil political rhetoric, which has been the norm in the United States for two centuries.

No, this isn’t part 4 - just a suggestion to check out Dave Barry’s Year in Review column. Very, very funny stuff!
