Hitch Number 8
Time Magazine eighth most influential person in 2011 as voted by you. (I'm not sure if this is the final list or if it is still open for voting.)
I must confess to being a little disappointed.
Even though these things are arguably superficial (just look at the top seven!), I would still have loved him to receive the validation of being voted the most influential, especially as this might well be his last hazar. (We can still hope he makes a complete recovery, though no nonsensical "praying for a miracle" of course ...)
Anyway he beat the execrable Glen Beck and that must be a source of satisfaction.
