Well...... Ummmmmm, Times opinion is one opinion.

As I think its good to have a diverstiy of opinions I shall quote Don Trump Jnrs tweeted reaction to the Time story:

"Time leaves out the Hong Kong Protesters fighting for their lives and freedoms to push a teen being used as a marketing gimmick.

How dare you?".


So, if youre gunna respect one point of view you gotta respect the other POV

Amazing to me how quickly a powerhouse like Time became virtually irrelevant.
Time Warner——-$56 BILLION DOLLARS not exactly irrelevant

Of all the properties owned by Time Warner (HBO, Cinemax, Warner Bros., DC Comics, New Line Cinema, etc.), I would venture to say that Time magazine is the "most" irrelevant.

Re: Sailing La Vegabond

Time magazine wrote - “Late November is not the time of year to cross the Atlantic Ocean: the seas are rough, the winds are fierce, and the small boat—a leaky catamaran—spent weeks pounding and bucking over 23-ft. seas.”.

I do believe that I can hear Riley’s teeth grinding from my couch.

Greta's time would have been better spent in India.

It seems my original point has gotten lost in the sauce. For better or worse, for over 50 years, Time magazine was a cultural touchstone, maker and breaker of politicians, "the" source for in depth news and analysis. I simply observed that I was amazed at how quickly it fallen from its lofty position atop the media heap to almost irrelevance.

My post about HBO et. al, was not related to the various entities intrinsic worth or merit; only to the other observation that "Time Warner" wasn't irrelevant because of its market value. My point in that post was that of all of those various business units, I would be willing to bet that Time magazine has the least monetary value.

Now that we've cleared that up, what exactly is a "Vegabond"?

Re: Sailing La Vegabond

Monetary value is not important to anyone but the shareholders... or the owners. Obviously to reach people you need some sort of platform and to build that takes money. The interesting thing is that Greta is making a rather big splash... pun intended... with rather limited personal funds.
