Sullivan offers his own Person of the Year: Neda Agha-Soltan. His tribute is well worth reading, and he's right to say that:
I never thought, on 9/11, that this blog, almost a decade later would end a post with the following words of solidarity and hope:
Allah O Akbar!

Words that a few years ago brought to mind images of suicide bombers and terrorism have been reclaimed as words of peace and hope. The events of 9/11 cast a shadow over the perception of Islam. Here's hoping that the events in Iran can cast some sunlight on it.
