I would consult Zagar and Evans before you give it any more thought.

515 years after the year in question. They already thought it out.

But the real question is, did we ever clarify the naming of this decade. There was The Sixties, The Seventies, etc. Next decade will again be called the Teens. But what of the years between 2000 and 2009 [or 2001-2010, depending on how you want to frame the decade].

At some point just calling it "The Fn Bush Years" or "The Bush Clusterfuck" is going to get old.

I always thought, as a bit of a salute to the old counting of 0 as naught, that The Naughties would be correct but with all the crap it no longer seems right.

Maybe, along with the change of the Peter Principle to Principle W, this could just be Decade ZERO. That fits.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
