As the year is coming to a close, and I will be less available over the next few days, the opportunity is perfect for taking a look at Consumerism Commentary and compiling a list of “best” (or most popular) entries from the year. This will be the 570th entry in 2005, but only a few of those I would consider worthy of being included on a “best of” list.
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Here is the “Best of 2005,” sort of categorized:
