2007 was a very messy year for the Whatever, thanks to various horrible technical difficulties that more or less wiped most of August and September off the map, in terms of entries. Be that as it may, I still managed to get off some pretty good pieces this year. Here are some of my favorites and/or most popular posts for 2007.
Incidentally, please note that if you try to comment on any entry dated before September 30, 2007, your comment will not go through. Remember those horrible technical difficulties? Right, then.
