MTYT: "Time Magazine's" person of the year

"Time Magazine "has chosen "the protester" as this year's person of the year.

And this choice appears to be getting just as much criticism as the year "Time" chose "you" as person of the year and put a reflective sticker on the magazine.

This year's choice is in honor of the protesters in the Middle East as well as the "Occupy Wall Street" movement.    Do you get the impression a lot of these folks are updating their resumes now?

I guess this is the point where I give my acceptance speech.  No, I wasn't part of the Occupy Wall Street movement, but I protested at one point in my life.  It was over 40 years ago I stood with my classmates to protest the Vietnam War.  If only my parents were still alive to see me get this honor - Person of the Year!

Not quite sure I agree with this choice by Time though.   For one thing, I'm not worthy.  And the other is there are many better choices.

That's my turn.  Now it's your turn.  To comment on this segment, or anything else, email me at
