2007: A Look Back in Anger
By David E. Petzal and Phil Bourjaily
Now that the new year is upon us and 2007 slinks off to its grave where it will begin to smell, it's time to take a look back at what really set us off, and what we had to say about it. The leader, of course, was Zumbogate, in which kindly old Jim Zumbo revealed that he was either Satan, or Satan's Spawn. However, he has since recanted and may no longer be Satan, or Satan's Spawn.
As for all the other things that made you mad, it's a rich and yeasty mix. So enjoy, and remember that we have a presidential election coming up, which should pretty well queer any hopes we have for '08 being a passable year. To update a quote that was fashionable in 1960 when John Kennedy ran against Tricky Dick Nixon, "Thank god they can't all win."
