Back in 2001

(It used to be that I couldn’t look back seven years. Then I could, but at least it was a different person I saw down there at the wrong end of the telescope. Now, I recall the me of 2001 and in most ways, she was me.

Google has their search index of 2001 up for playing. Crooked Timber is already collecting some fun stuff including searches for housing bubble and subprime mortgage lending. Instead, I would just like to observe that apparently 2008 wasn’t looking so exciting back then.
