While listening to All Things Considered on NPR yesterday I heard 2 stories that have me excited for 2008. First, the UN has declared 2008 the International Year of the Potato. For a guy like me who eats french fries on his way to a Thanksgiving dinner of baked potatoes with mashed potatoes on the side this means every morning should feel like Christmas morning.
Secondly, All Things Considered ran a piece on celebrations starting for the Abe Lincoln Bicentennial. Even though Abe was born in 1809 I can't think of any reason we shouldn't start now and make it a 2 year celebration.
Here's the link where you can listen to yesterday's story from All Things Considered and see how awesomely Adamcentric 2008 should be.
