I've been meaning to mention Interesting Times, a blog I first noticed a week or two ago. IT sums up (via CalPundit) Time's choice for Persons of the Year most succinctly:
TIME gives honors to the whistleblowers.
The Bush administration gives them to their bosses.
One reason I like Time's pick more than my good friend Dodd's is that these women each attempted to confront or call attention to the wrongdoing, corruption or ineptitude within their organizations, and at considerable personal risk (not to life and limb, of course, but now is sure a lousy time to be out of a job...). Bush has demonstrated that he isn't willing to do any more about the problems than necessary to avoid political risk.
