Bill & Melinda Gates, Persons of the Year!

Time magazine has named Bill & Melinda Gates, with Bono (U2's Bono Hewson, not Sonny Bono) as it's latest Persons of the Year.

IMO, about time!

The philantrophy of the B&M Gates Foundation has really jump-started a lot of research in diseases that afflict a lot of people in improverished countries.

Being of African descent, I am especially appreciative of the resources he has dedicated to helping eradicate malaria, which kills approximately 2 million (yes, two million) Africans yearly.

On behalf of all Africans: Congratulations.
