Time Magazine Person of the Year: Childkiller in Chief

Time could have taken this an opportunity to put Malala Yousafzai on the cover.  That would have been a spotlight on courage, on reform, on rights, on a global stage, on the notion that there are persons in places outside our comfortable boundaries.  But they didn’t.

Rather than lionize a courageous child who should be an inspiration to us all, Time gave the distinction to our Childkiller in Chief, whose dubiously authorized drone strikes on sovereign nations without a Congressional declaration of war have killed 178 children thus far.

I guess it was Adam Lanza‘s lousy luck that he either waited too long this year or didn’t hold off until early next year.  Maybe he’d be on the cover instead.
