I take it as a sign of deep consternation in elite circles that in the year of Katrina, Cronulla, riots in the banlieus, London bombings, man-worsened natural disasters in southeast and central Asia, floundering primitive-accumulation projects in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a rejected EU constitution, to name just a few of the crises, Time magazine has with its Person of the Year designation assured us that the wealthy and powerful–in the form of the world’s richest man, his wife, and the world’s most important pop star (whose politics may now be even more insufferable than his music)–do indeed care about the well-being of the sick and poor. Ugh. They must be desperate.
