Congrats, you guys, for being named Person of the Year.

Personally, I think it’s ridiculous Time didn’t give that particular encomium to Al Gore. Has any individual ever before so fundamentally changed public debate on so technical a subject in such a short period of time? Not to mention the personal drama of his redemption, etc. Guess the folks at Time didn’t want to get political … oh, wait.
