This is ridiculous

It's easy to be "person of the year" when you are the President of the United States, it is not easy to do what Malala did considering her place in this world.

Adolf Hitler Was Man of The Year In 1933...

Time has no credibility whatsoever...It is more like "Monster" of the Year!

'Time mag is a rag'.. I don't know anyone these days that subscribes to it...

Congressman Ron Paul should have been man of the year from 2007 - 2012..
