Not everything's changed in the decade since chads got hung up, the Y2K bug was exterminated and the dot-com bubble burst. Americans were plainly upset at flight delays, even before shoeless shakedowns and 3-oz. liquid limits. Mobile phones and automobiles were a distractive destructive mix, evn b4 txtng. And we killed plenty of time navigating the insurance racket, even before "death panels." Speaking of death panels, it was a tough 10 years for editorial cartoonists. Dozens of newspapers killed the position, including all three credited above.
