My Way News - Time Magazine's Person of the Year: You: "NEW YORK (AP) - Congratulations! You are the Time magazine 'Person of the Year.'" WHAT? IT'S NOT MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD? KIM JONG IL? HUGO CHAVEZ? NANCY PELOSI?

    What would make you think that would ever happen! Going back the last 15 years, more conservatives/Republicans have been named Time Person of the Year than leftists/Democrats. Time Magazine isnt the Daily Kos.

    Ha! I guess it would depend on what one would consider conservative, CH--of course I guess I'm kind of stuck in the 70s in terms of perspective. :)

    Yes! I did forget to, in your honor, mention that conservative here is mainstream conservative, how it gets defined today, not actual conservative. I tried to imply that by including the "/Republican" in there.

    In the late 1930s/early 40s Hitler and Stalin had won the "honor" though... scary.

    Hey CH,

    Worried about Mochi--do you know if he is ok? Haven't heard anything from him for quite while.

    If you are able to get in touch with him, let him know some of his friends are concerned.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
