TIME Magazine Persons of the Year 2005: Bono, and Bill & Melinda Gates. One hardly knows where to begin assessing the pathology.
Bono? Oh yes, when the histories are written, mankind will no doubt remember the great movers and shakers: Alexander, Caesar, Galileo, Luther, Washington, Napoleon, Lincoln, Lenin, Churchill, Stalin, FDR, Reagan, Bono. OK, maybe I'm making the "pond" too big, but how small of mud puddle do we have to narrow this down to in order to make Bono a big fish?
Then there is Melinda Gates. It seems TIME has leaked another big secret (for once with no damage to our national security), Melinda is actually the brains of the Microsoft operation, the great unsung hero of the computing revolution. And all these years we thought it was Bill. So, what's he even doing on the magazine cover?
And the elitist media tells us that it's George W. Bush who is "in a bubble."
