Brian Williams’ Choice for Person of the Year

By Chris Ariens 

Time magazine asked a few “prominent individuals” who they’d select as person of the year. Here’s Brian Williams‘ selection:

My nominee for 2007 Person of the Year is a woman — a woman with a history of abuse, a woman who has never run for elective office, someone we all know, someone who makes her presence known on a daily basis in all our lives and, for my money, is better than any male alternative. That woman is Mother Earth. I think the environment is the compelling issue of our time.

Williams has a pretty good track record at this sort of thing. Last year at a Time POY event, Williams suggested “You” would be a good choice. Time took him up on it.
