Is it correct to write the 2000s as in the 1900s? How do you pronounce the 2000s?

Yes. But to say it is still "up in the air" (idiom). Some Angelenos (citizens of Los Angeles, California) say, "two thousand ten", some say, "two thousand and ten". I have been saying, "twenty-ten" and now more and more people here are saying "twenty" instead of "two thousand". Why? We are too lazy to say "thousand". How to pronounce 2000's? As lazy as I am I would pronounce it: "twenty-ought" plus a single digit number. "Twenty-ought one", for example. But I'm an old cowboy from Colorado.
