"The Time 100": Some of Theirs and Some of Mine

A Short-List of Nine:

Time Magazine recently published its 2006 list of The 100 Most Influential Personalities.

This list also includes some personalities who, I feel, by their own right deserve a similar recognition. So, the somewhat customized list presented here includes (pictured from top to bottom):

1. Hillary Clinton.
2. Studs Terkel. Also see Terkel's Commemorative Site.
3. Paul Simon.
4. Ellen DeGeneres.
5. Barrack Obama.
6. Bono
7. Clinton and Bush.
8. Minnie Minoso.
