A Trip to the Dentist

Time has named George W. Bush “Man of the Year” or “Person of the Year” – if you care. I don’t. I don’t read Time Magazine, except at the dentist and even then I’d usually grab a copy of Consumer Reports first. Unlike Hugh Hewitt, the only weekly magazine I read regularly in its dead tree edition anymore is The New Yorker – and I fall behind on that. There’s simply too much to read online, too much of it good and more current than the newsweeklies, like Power Line, which Time had the good sense to name its “Blog of the Year. Congrats to them – they more than deserve it. But I’m still not subscribing to Time. I wouldn’t have time to read it. (I’ll be reading “Power Line,” etc., not to mention some daily newspapers and books.)
