They do non-people all the time. In 1982, it was the computer. And just last year, they picked George W. Bush.

Now Bono and Mother Nature are tied on 28% each.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

i hope we can only vote once it seems like a lot of polls involving Bono/U2 suddenly get flooded by a ton of U2 fans and the result isn't exactly 'realistic'.

didn't TIME have "Endangered Mother Earth" as person of the year in, like, 1990?

it should be Mother Nature.

Katrina was the beginning of the end of the Bush presidency, and the Tsunami was a global catastrophe of biblical proportions.

and, sadly, no one even talks about the Pakistan earthquale.

OK my computer must be screwed up because I could have sworn the poll just said J.K.Rowling was ahead with 58% of the votes. Please tell me I'm mistaken. Hairy Pooter is the most important thing? I don't liXes that at all.

Oh FFS. JK Rowling IS winning. By a considerable margin. Trust her whiny little pre-teen fans to crawl out of the woodwork just when Bono was catching up. Don't get me wrong, I like JK Rowling and I like her books, but she is nowhere near the most important person of 2005.

Just thinking about what Bono has said about himself recently in the rolling stone magazine , how some people are sick of hearing about him, he says, "I'm sick of Bono". I can't help but think that he's flattered by being mentioned for Time magazine, the Nobel Peace Price and such, but probably would prefer not to have more attention drawn to him again.
After all, he knows he's man of the year to thousands of us already, don't need a magazine cover to let him know that. He'd rather have our attention focused on the issues that matter to him.
