It's been another fun year for me in running this site, and I'd like to thank all of you who visit regularly, irregularly, or even once.  I'd also like to thank everyone who has helped by contributing comments and post ideas.  It's good to know there's at least a few people out there who enjoy my little corner of the intertubes.  Since we're in the midst of year-end review season, let's take a quick look back at the posting year that was 2010 for The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit.

Constant invitations to like pages such as "Lee Myung-bak is a loser imperialist aggressor lolz" and "Dear Leader will save all from impotent United States!!!$@#" Annoyingly vague status updates obviously meant to fish for responses or sympathy,
