It’s almost the end of 2013 and it’s time to declare the year’s person of the year. Of course, Time magazine has sneaked in ahead of us - we were a little busy with watching the comings and goings of about a hundred presidents and prime ministers here to bear witness to the passing of Nelson Mandela. In any case, we had already decided we would come out with our choice today so Time’s butting ahead in the queue really doesn’t matter. Moreover, we’re going to take issue with Time’s choice so readers will now get to choose who’s right (Hint: we are). BY J BROOKS SPECTOR.
