Marketplace Scratch Pad

Should auld ’09 be forgot

Scott Jagow Dec 31, 2009

It’s almost over. Heck, in some parts of the world, people have already kissed off 2009 and welcomed in 2010 with abundant joy. But I still have time to fit in a few New Year’s wishes, starting with this:

So we’re not going to rehash the year, let alone the Naughty Aughties, the Awful Aughts, the Zeroes, the Zilches, the Lost Decade, Enron, Worldcom, Tyco, Adelphia, AOL, the Dow, the credit crunch, the dot-com crash, the housing crash, the car crash, Y2K, TARP, 9/11, War, the Great Recession, jobs. And everything else.

No, there’s nothing left to do but think positive about the future.

And enjoy the present.

Alright, I take back what I said. No year-end blog post is complete without JibJab’s year in review! And we certainly don’t want to be doomed to repeat what just happened. So, roll the video:
