The Oz Decade

Much handwring occured up until 2009 with respect to what to call the previous decade.
After all, you had the Sixties, the Seventies, the Eighties and the Nineties, but the Oughties sounded weird.
Well, I propose and history will weigh in on this choice, The Oz Decade.

In 2000, if we only had a brain, we would have elected Al Gore.
In 2001, if we only had courage, we would have gone after Al Qaeda.
In 2002, if we only had a heart, we would left Iraq alone.
In 2009, if we only had a home, we could have avoided foreclosure and homelessness.
