An Open Letter to Time Magazine

Dear Henry Luce,

Thank you for bestowing me with my third-time Time Man of the Year award. This time, however, I must regretfully decline the honor.

As a longtime blogger, I have nothing against self-expression. I'm for it.

But to take a prize this year for effectiveness?

I'm afraid not.

I blogged on behalf of the Constitution. But that didn't stop my Democratic congressman from voting to shred it along with Habeas Corpus.

I expressed outrage against the mendacity and incompetence of the Bush Administration and the Press. But even though I, like tens of millions of other Americans, voted to out the Republican regime in Congress, neither the President nor the media have seemed to paid any mind.

So I'm returning the prize. You may keep it for yourself; or perhaps you might want to share it with John Yoo and Jose Padilla: The latter the victim of our post-Constitutional America; Yoo the legal architect of the new regime; and you, the press, for enabling it.


John Lennon would have been so proud of you.

So it really is all about me. I mean, us.
