In case you were wondering, 2009 is not a prime number. We lived in a prime year in 2003, and will again in 2011. Recent primes also include 1949, 1951, 1973, 1979, 1987, 1993, 1997, & 1999. I'm sure there is more than one crazy person out there who has theory correlating home runs in baseball or stock prices or whatnot with the occurrence of a prime numbered year, but thankfully this is not a year in which such powerful forces control our destiny.
