Kim Jong-Un is having a good year. After taking over the leadership of North Korea from his late father Kim Jong Il, at the end of 2011, he’s solidified his control over the country, appeared on TIME’s cover and he was even named ‘Sexiest Man Alive.’ Now, he’s gotten the most votes in TIME’s completely unscientific reader Person of the Year Poll with 5.6 million votes. Not bad for a man who didn’t make an official public appearance until 2010. Join CBG this Thursday for breakfast, and let us know if you agree with the readers of Time Magazine that President Kim is “the person you think most influenced the news this year for better or worse”?
More conventional choices would be Bashar Assad or Barack Obama. Time itself thought rapper Jay-Z or activist Sandra Fluke would be good choices. Perhaps CBG should use a different criterion in picking their person of the year. What local person do you feel most influenced the news this year here in Kent County?
