Is it Over Yet? 2008 in Review: October – December

The final three months of 2008 was a roller coaster ride to say the least – from the November election’s winds of change to the ominous storms brought on by epic financial failures.   And while what will happen in 2009 is a mystery, we’re just glad the year is finally over.  Here are the “highlights” from the final three months of 2008:

    The biggest story here is not Squadron it’s the BHA’s whining about the noise created by Rock and Roll Circus. If it’s too loud, you’re too old.

  • AEB

    No, Ignacio, if it’s too loud it’s too loud.

    Please keep in mind that, American marketing to the contrary, it’s not about always making the world a safer and safer place for the tastes of the young.
