Person of the Year

Ben Bernanke, "the nerd from South Carolina", was named TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year on Wednesday.

You could be forgiven for thinking that it was April Fool's Day! I mean, what a choice! But then again, when you go back over the past list of characters who have graced that front page, you really start to wonder who the hell is running TIME Magazine: Adolf Hitler (1938), Joseph Stalin (1938), and the Ayatollah Khomeini (1979).
