Why Let Time Have All the Fun? Who is Encinitas’ Person of the Year?

This poll is in two parts: Nominate your Person of the Year and we’ll have a runoff next month.

On Dec. 14, Time magazine will announce its Person of the Year—which isn’t guaranteed to be an actual man or woman. But in the run-up, the magazine has invited votes on 40 candidates, including Barack Obama, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options include The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle. But who cares about the same-old same-old? Who is Encinitas’ Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse”? We won’t preselect your picks. But the ones most often mentioned in the comments (and tell us why) will have a runoff in a month.

Ravi Shankar 1920-2012 Sitarist and composer who helped introduce the sitar to the Western world through his collaborations with The Beatles. His music transcends the boundaries of race and religion. It is what humanity is all about.
