The traditional list of the year’s “ins” and “outs” appeared in the Washington Post today.

For instance, Tom Cruise is “Out” and Donald Rumsfeld is “In”. Three button suits are “out” and hazmat suits are “in.” There was an LOTR reference.

“It was tempting to forgo the usual formidable research into determining those trends, ideas, people and products whose time in the spotlight has expired and pronounce everything out except peace, love, understanding and firefighters.”

Jim Carrey is “out” and Viggo Mortensen is “in.”
