Two radicals, adored and reviled
by Ted Rall
NEW YORK--"I will never buy Time again." So swore several of my friends upon hearing that George W. Bush had been named its "Man of the Year." I explained that the designation is less of an award than a recognition of an individual's importance, that Henry Luce wasn't sucking up to Hitler when he named the German tyrant for the same honor in 1938. "This is worse," one wrote, "because Hitler was merely evil. Bush is stupid as well."
