I'm Person of the Year!

And so are you. Time magazine says we all are. Why? Because the World Wide Web let's us all determine the shape of the new media. Or something like that. I couldn't read the insipid thing. Anyway, if everyone is person of the year, then no one is. That's fine. It reminds me of W.S. Gilbert's lyric from The Gondoliers:
When every one is somebodee,
Then no one's anybody!

Not so fast, Steve. Hitler was person of the year once too!

I was in the midst of a self-esteem crisis that not even reading Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead could cure. Now I feel better knowing that Time has named me person of the year.
