The Boston Globe assembled a panel of experts and asked them what they “are so over with” as 2007 closes.
Among the items:
The subprime lending rate
Smokers “whining about their rights”
The digital revolution
Non-gay Republican senators soliciting anonymous gay sex.
Thai food and flavored toothpaste
The word “amazing”
News Cut, of course, does not have a panel of experts. That’s your cue to pull up a comment box and list the things you’re done with in 2008.
