According to a new poll, nearly twice as many Americans have a negative impression of the aughts as those that have a positive one. Not all that surprising for a decade which included the worst terrorist attack in American history, the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression, the worst natural disaster in over 100 years, two long wars, the death of Billy Mays, and the widespread theatrical release of Glitter. On the other hand, most people are very pleased with their cell phones. [Pew]
