Yesterday, TIME announced their “Person of the Year,” which it turns out is actually the “People of the Year.” Choosing the “Silence Breakers,” as TIME calls them, was the right choice. Choosing to have an all female team write, photograph, and handle pretty much every aspect of the cover story was also wisely done.

So, that somewhere you have to be in an hour…you’re already late.

While you may be bemoaning the loss of your hour, there is an upside. In fact, there are several. Read the rest of this entry
