The Guardian:

An article full of lines like these:

and The New York Times:

With this beauty:

“Still, this has so far been a year of heartening surprises – each one remarkable in itself, and taken together truly astonishing. The Bush administration is entitled to claim a healthy share of the credit for many of these advances.”
