Here we are, almost halfway through 2009. And you're telling me we NEVER came up with a universally accepted name for this decade?
I never dreamed this decade would come and go without us finding a name for it. Sorry, backers of "the aughts" or "the naughts," but you never built any consensus. And calling it the 2000s is confusing — it sounds like you mean the whole century.
Let's at least try to get a jump on the next decade. Should it be "the tens" or do we have to wait a couple years and start calling it "the teens"? Get on it.
