This is possibly why Time Magazine announced that James is a nominee in the periodical’s annual “Person of the Year” recognition. And while he is one of 25 nominees, he’s not too happy about it:
The award was first given in 1927 to pilot Charles Lindbergh. Other nominees this year include President Barack Obama (who won in 2008), Lady Gaga, Sarah Palin, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, Glenn Beck, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the Chilean miners (who were trapped in a mine for more than two months).
“That’s just crazy. What those guys did, the courage and what they stood for, I should be nowhere near that list. Nowhere near it.”
