We have tended to avoid typical year-ender articles around here: ten best/10 worst, for instance, or people who have died. Not that there's anything wrong with them. A new-to-me website, The Thomas Chronicles (somehow I like that name) has an amusing take on the rush of recent events, as if the news wants to be in 2006 instead of 2007, like tax-deductible expenses booked before January 1.
