100 things that defined the 2000s

As we quickly approach the final year of the first decade of the 21st century, the blog “You aught to remember” is getting an early start and “counting the 100 trends, fashions, memes, personalities and ideas that shaped the first decade of the 21st Century.” I think I’ll caveat that this cheeky list is more accurately the 100 things that Americans will remember about this decade. The list, counting down from 100 and currently at 57 with Michael Phelps includes High School Musical, Sacha Baron Cohen, World of Warcraft, terror alerts, same sex marriage (or rather the battle of…), and of course the crowning event of the aughts, the Red Sox winning the World Series in 2004! Why do I have the feeling that President Obama or Bush will be number one?
