If you flip to the letters page of the May 26th edition of Time magazine, you'll see my letter. Short and sweet.
I was reacting to the fact that whenever a publication lists a top-100 list of anything, there are always people writing in to say how they're frustrated that their favorite person didn't make the cut. It happens every time.
For what it's worth, here's the unedited letter: "Let me be the first to say, "Why didn't you include [my favorite person] in the list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World?!" Isn't this one of 500,000 such letters?"
