    Again, that hasn't been the complaint, Thunder. Do you recall when Person of the Year was "You" and they had a mirror so you could see "you" in there?http://www.time.com/time/magazine/ar...570810,00.html The justification was social media in Web 2.0. How about 2003's "The American Soldier"? 2004's "Whistleblowers". People called that a cop-out too. It was as if the board room was filled with too many disagreements and they pulled a George Lucas and said, "why not just do this and we can rationalize it by saying x, y, z."

    You can keep going down the line.

    I always thought of it as in a positive light as "person of the year". Guess I was wrong, eh?
