The list of "Person of the Century" goes:

Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot...

Among other great human beings.

My children are confused:

"Dad, how could the evil and the good stand

together in the same Hall of Fame, or Shame;

which ‘person’ shall one imitate?"

TIME really mixed Heaven and Hell.
