2005_12_timepeople.jpgTime unveiled its Person of Year, which is actually People of the Year, not a Force of the Year as many had suspected, with Good Samartians Bill and Melinda Gates and Bono being the people in question. You can't actually read why they're so great online - okay, you can read it, you Time subscribers - so we'll just speculate that Time was upset that an early pick of "Mother Nature" was leaked. And besides, what sells more magazines than one of the world's richest men and his do-gooding wife and an Irish rocker who rocks the sunglasses every chance he can? Managing Editor Jim Kelly explained on the Today show that the selection was to show what people can do in the face of adversity.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which is pretty amazing (we liked the New Yorker article about it a couple weeks ago) and Bono's One Campaign to fight poverty. And two things you can see on the Time.com site: Other People of the Year include Chief Justice John Roberts and Kanye West and the Best Photos of the Year.
