Since 2002 Time has honored a non-person 4 times with the award, in only a span of 9 years. Back to back in 2002 and 2003 even.
I don’t particularly care about the award and who gets it, but I do think that Time has a history of fucking up the award. All the proof you need is the 1938 award to Adolf Hitler. I don’t care what the context was. Because it was followed in 1939 by Stalin. If you still want to argue President George W. Bush was awarded it twice.
