    Those people aren't interesting at all. Come on, give me a break! These people, like Steve Jobs and George Clooney, would be much better picks: http://www.dailyillini.com/index.php/article/2011/12/walters_misses_the_mark_on_most_interesting_people

    Kardashians??? most fascinating in 2011? Really? Daniel Craig described them best. They are "f***ing idiots". I think my admiration for Barbara Walters just went down a notch. I never read anything about these trash. I skipped any article that has to do with them.

    All the news in 2012 - major social upheavals and revolutions;political and economic crises in the US, Europe and elsewhere;emergence of potentially major new social movements in Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party. And the twit chooses The Kardashians? I wonder if perhaps Bab Wawa doesn't have early onset Alzheimers.

    Katy Perry, really? How is she fascinating, she's just like all the other pop stars. Nothing really fascinating about her.
