I hope next year's biggest punchline is, "Despite it's best efforts to the contrary, the United States still managed to bring an end to all of its wars."And…"The old adage 'Fortune favors the young and the stupid' needs to be amended because that's the only way the US & the rest of the world got out of this financial nightmare. Wait, maybe it doesn't need to be amended…"Because I don't think we could survive another Year in Review that funny.
