Let’s put things into perspective: 2010 was not the worst year ever. There have been MUCH worse years. For example, toward the end of the Cretaceous Period, the Earth was struck by an asteroid that wiped out 75 percent of all the species on the planet. Can we honestly say that we had a worse year than those species did? Yes we can, because they were not exposed to Jersey Shore. Dave Barry reviews 2010, the worst of all years, ever.

we must always remember that we all have a common enemy, an enemy that is dangerous, powerful and relentless. I refer, of course, to the federal government.

Do Not Call 317-816-9336.
Columnist Dave Barry takes on the American Teleservices Association again
, publishing their new number (they had to disconnect their old one after he mentioned it in a previous column.
) But please, don't call 317-816-9336, because to suggest "calling somebody who doesnt want to be called, even if you have the legal right to call, well, that's just plain rude."

Good! It's "Let's Make Fun Of Wall Street" Day At The Miami Herald!
Can it be a coincidence that the two funniest columnists in Miami, Carl Hiaasen
[Imagine if the entire board of Arthur Andersen were rounded up, blindfolded and flown to Guantánamo Bay for interrogation.
] and Dave Barry
[Wall Street is in trouble, and things are not going to get better until you, the small investor, stop selfishly thinking about yourself all the time.
] have chosen this Sunday to raise a few laughs at the expense of poor, old beleaguered Wall Street? Let's hope not.

Even if you're not a Dave Barry fan
you might appreciate reading his thoughts on the 9/11 disaster. For me, this piece was evidence that one of America's most prolific humorists has talent that goes beyond just being funny.
