1. Ebola Fighters Narrowly Edge Taylor Swift As Time's 'Person Of The Year'

The heroic medical practitioners who risked infection and death to halt the spread of Ebola in Africa and give aid to the virus' ailing victims just barely managed to beat pop singer Taylor Swift for the honor of being named Time Magazine's 'Person of the Year.' With all due respect to the men and women who deal with Ebola on a daily basis, I doubt their version of 'Welcome to New York' would have been met with nearly as much glee.
