Who Is IB’s Person of the Year?

Why let 'Time' have all the fun? This poll is in two parts: Nominate your Person of the Year and we’ll have a runoff next month.

On Dec. 14, Time magazine will announce its Person of the Year—which isn’t guaranteed to be an actual man or woman. But in the run-up, the magazine has invited votes on 40 candidates, including Barack Obama, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options include The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle. But who cares about the same-old same-old? Who is Imperial Beach’s Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse”? We won’t preselect your picks. But the ones most often mentioned in the comments (and tell us why) will have a runoff in a month.

Tyrone Wood's EARNED it. Oh come on, suggesting Serge Dedina is about the same as giving Obama the Nobel Peace Prize before he bacame president. Offensive. Not everyone shares you love for Serge; who has a long was to go to get to the level of Mr. Wood's contributions.

Actually, if Patch is looking for... the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse”... I nominate myself, for better or worse!
