2005 Person of the Year: Katrina? Nobodies say yes

A team of notables has highly recommended that Time magazine select Hurricane Katrina as their 2005 Person of the Year. Those making this suggestion are:

NBC anchor Brian Williams...
CNN's Anderson Cooper...
Time reporter Matthew Cooper...
Democratic political consultant Donna Brazile...
conservative activist Grover Norquist...
WorldCom whistleblower Cynthia Cooper, named a Person of the Year by the magazine in 2002...

Yes, exactly: who cares what they think?
In fact, Brian Williams wants to broaden the selection a bit to include Gaia, which would cover global warming, tsunamis, the Pakistan earthquake, global warming, and global warming.

"Katrina gets you to Iraq. It gets you to petroleum. It gets you to presidential politics," Williams said. "It has laid bare so many cracks and fissures in our system."
