2007 review: The year according to Dave Barry

Dave Barry does the year in review. Among the highlights:

It was a year filled with bizarre, insane, destructive behavior, an alarming amount of which involved astronauts.

In short, 2007 was a year of deep gloom, pierced occasionally by rays of even deeper gloom. Oh, sure, there were a few bright spots:

Several courageous members of the U.S. Congress -- it could be as many as a dozen -- decided, incredibly, not to run for president.

O.J. Simpson discovered that, although you might be able to avoid jail time for committing a double homicide, the justice system draws the line at attempted theft of sports memorabilia.

Toward the end of the year, entire days went by when it was possible to not think about Paris Hilton.

Apple released the iPhone, which, as we understand it, enables users to fly, cure cancer, read minds and travel through time.

The plucky, lovable New York Yankees once again found a way, against all odds, to bring joy to the literally billions of people who do not root for them.

Dick Cheney did not shoot anybody, as far as we know.
