Dave Barry’s Year in Review: 2009

by the Left Coast Rebel

I’ve been a fan of Dave Barry for years, ever since being a kid. Perhaps this shows my indpendent streak and pseudo libertarian instincts all the way, way back when. He has a certain way of saying things, pointing to the absurdities of our society with a pro-liberty edge that is open to a wider audience. I have always sensed the subtle humor that resembles what I believe and feel coming through in his work. How could you not love the opening of Dave Barry’s Year in Review:2009:

It was a year of Hope — at first in the sense of “I feel hopeful!” and later in the sense of “I hope this year ends soon!”

It was also a year of Change, especially in Washington, where the tired old hacks of yesteryear finally yielded the reins of power to a group of fresh, young, idealistic, new-idea outsiders such as Nancy Pelosi. As a result Washington, rejecting “business as usual,” finally stopped trying to solve every problem by throwing billions of taxpayer dollars at it and instead started trying to solve every problem by throwing trillions of taxpayer dollars at it.
