Time Magazine has published this year’s (well, actually last year’s, but let’s not nit pick) list of the 100 most influential people. As Time emphasizes, being on the list is not an honor, merely a reflection ones influence on what’s happening in the world.

At place 1: Singer Beyoncé

At place 77: Pope Francis

You may say what you want, but any place where an entertainer has more influence than the most powerful religious leader is a good place.

Remember: When the pope was the world’s most influential person; we call that time the ‘Dark Times’.

This is progress.
