Before we sweep out Decemeber and 2006, let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater and remember to remember this crowded, swift and pretty snowless month:
* Augusto Pinochet died, Chileans and the world reflected.
* Britney got up to more tricks, but we still like her music.
* Lots of animals entered our hearts, and our homes.
*Some beautifully naive sponge creatures got in there, too.
