Giuliani PERSON OF THE YEAR

Well, It's final.. Rudy is Person of the Year.. Check teh Link.... http://www.time.com/time/poy2001/index.html

In my opinion, a well done choice, Though I was pulling for Bush.. i guess the editors at time couldn't give that much praise to the republicans... Hah.. But anyways, I'm smiling at seeing this.. There were so many people involved with this tragedy to give the award to.. firefighters... people on the overturned plane.. . But Rudy I think sums up all their efforts, by setting the 'attitude' of New York towards this disaster.. Cheers.

I agree. I don't follow politics much, but I saw the press conferences and interviews with him, and I thought his calm but determined demeanor was exactly what was needed.
He seems like a tough guy, which I'm sure is a must if you're the mayor of New York, but he also showed that he is very sensitive to the needs of the people. I don't know much about his past, but I respect the man for how he handled this disaster.

That's great. He is such a ood guy. He's had the roughest of all years too. Wow. he really had to overcome a lot. He expresses an idea that I love. That is to try to remain the calmest one inside the chaos. he really lived up to that this year. Congrats *opens bottle of non-alcoholic champagne*!

If you're saying this because you think Time was too wussy to put ObL on the cover, I think they seriously considered making Hitler the Person Of The Century (last century, that is).

Although he's not a bad choice, I think the NYC firefighters and police should have been voted in. Anybody remember when Earth was the Person of the Year?

I wouldn't say it's just a U.S. thing, but it is an "award" given by Time magazine, a U.S. publication, so without question it is totally U.S.-centered.

I was hoping that the Firefighters and Policeman would of gotten it, but Rudy is the next best person.

It depends. Time publishes an edition in Canada (I don't know about the rest of the world, or ROW depends wich side your on). It would be weird to see Giuliani on the front page as Person of the Year (painting Canada as the 5Ith USA State).... I admit that Giuliani was a good dealer in all this, but it was mostly for New York, not for the rest of the world (i.e.: outside the USA). So, for the rest of the world I would choose someone like Bin Laden 'cos he had an impact (and to be more precise I would say in the occidental world and in the islamic world, cos I don't think he had an impact for the paysan in Togo...).

Let's say : God and Allah on the front page of an international magazine, shaking hands with the title : "Apparently, they hate each other".

Cheers
