For the first time, Barbara Walters’s “Most Fascinating Person of 2011” is no longer living.

Steve Jobs, the iconic CEO of Apple Computer who passed away in October from pancreatic cancer, received the honor; with Walters saying, “It’s hard to imagine there ever being anyone quite like him again.”

Even before he died, Walters had decided to give the honor to Jobs upon his retirement in August – unfortunately, never getting the final interview she desired.

“But we’re sticking with our choice,” she said. “Rules were meant to be broken, and that’s certainly how Steve Jobs lived his life.”

Other people on her list include Herman Cain, Simon Cowell, Katy Perry, The Kardashians, Donald Trump, Derek Jeter, Amanda Knox, part of the cast of “Modern Family”, and naturally, Pippa Middleton.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
