Gee, sorry Allan. The article says "_The New York Times_ plans to
call the years 2000 through 2009 the Ohs. `It is literal, logical
and, even more than positive, it portends what Paul Simon's lyric
calls `the age of miracle and wonder,'' says an editorial in the
newspaper." It doesn't give a date for said editorial.

To paraphrase from _Copy Editor_ magazine, June/July 1994 (I'm sure
you're already familiar with this, Jesse), The NY Times has decided
to call the years 2000 to 2009 the "Ohs," which, personally, I think
is pretty horrendous.
We _have_? Nobody asked me.
