Time Magazine Celebrity of the Year ....

I wonder whether one can recognize a kid who is going to make it big one day by how relentless they are, the way they ask questions and respond to the answers?
Quote:
The young Mark was "strong-willed and relentless," according to his father Ed. "For some kids, their questions could be answered with a simple yes or no," he says. "For Mark, if he asked for something, yes by itself would work, but no required much more. If you were going to say no to him, you had better be prepared with a strong argument backed by facts, experiences, logic, reasons. We envisioned him becoming a lawyer one day, with a near 100% success rate of convincing juries."

This is Mark Zuckerberg's father talking about him. Zuckerberg has just been anointed Time Magazine's Person of the Year. Looks as though Time Magazine has this gender thing completely sorted out, no longer "Man of the year" but "Person of the Year". Doesn't sound the same however, Person sounds more like an "it"? Twisted Evil Maybe "Celebrity of the Year" would have been a better fit?

Thanks for this link, wow, that was great fun to go through the covers. I noticed this introduction to the cover for "Person of the Year" referring to the "Man who tamed Russia" Very Happy

The Man Who Tamed Russia
Your selection of Russian President Vladimir Putin as Person of the Year was spot on . Putin may yet become the single most important person of the 21st century. Occupying the largest landmass of any nation, Russia has just begun to tap its natural resources and national potential. Putin's rise to power in 1999 is ...

I liked these ones:
2002 - The Whistleblowers

2003 - The American Soldier


Just look how much Bush aged between 2000 and 2004? Or was that just Time Magazine's doing? First they painted off the wrinkles for the 2000 pic, and then they painted on wrinkles for the 2004 pic? Twisted Evil
2000 - Bush

2004 - Bush
