Hurricane Katrina nominated as Time's Person of the Year

Six-member panel invited to make suggestions

Any number of dignitaries, politicians and other people of note would make formidable candidates as Time magazine's 2005 Person of the Year. However, a nominee of a different sort may grace the coveted cover. A committee suggests that this year's award go to Hurricane Katrina. Details from The Associated Press via Newsday.com.

Instead of "Hurricane Katrina" who is not a human at all, how about some of those that experienced the destruction of such a disaster. I would love to see a New Orleans black family on the cover as "Person/People of the Year." They really are the "people of the year" as far as I'm concerned. Survival is quite trendy these days.

I agree with you Jaimie. That is logical to select people instead.

Jaimie and Shirazi: In a matter of time, we will see what happens. Perhaps both of you should have sat on that panel. :-)

Even if Hurrican Katrina ischosen, I am sure that there will be at least one human face on the cover that somehow represents Katrina. The face (or faces) may also represent other global calamities we have witnessed this year. Stay tuned.

wow, this can't be serious.

Deb S. said...

So, Rell, do you have any ideas for the magazine cover? :-)

Deb S. said...

Folks, I have to say this: I don't necessarily support this nomination, but I do understand the concept behind it. That, to me, is scary. I think I stayed in the newsroom way too long! LOL

DCS--I'm with you understanding it but supporting are two very different things. As always it will be what brings the or what is thought to bring the most money that will win out and if they feel Hurricane Katrina as Time's Person of the Year is the winner you can bet that is the way it will go....right or wrong.

Ms. Vickie, you are absolutely right.
