The Corner


Here’s a list of Time’s “Person of the Year” since 1927. The editors picked Bush in 2000, so I doubt they’ll choose him again this time. Bloggers would be interesting, but they’ve made some computer and Internet picks in recent years (Andy Grove, Jeff Bezos) so I think they might avoid something similar now. I suspect they will inevitably choose gays and lesbians one of these years, and this one would be as good as any. If it were up to me, I’d think about selecting John O’Neill and the Swift Boat Vets.
