And Barack Obama:
No mention of the banks.
The Atlantic's 19 Brave Thinkers of 2010.
19 People risking their reputations, fortunes, and lives in pursuit of big ideas
* The Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas
* The Doctor Carol Ball
* The Prime Minister David Cameron
* The Soldier Dan Choi
* The Actor Kevin Costner
* The General Michael T. Flynn
* The Farmer John Hantz
* The Scientist John Ioannidis
* The Inventor Lonnie Johnson
* The CEO Elon Musk
* The Congressman Ron Paul
* The Historian Diane Ravitch
* The Team Owner Robert Sarver
* The Businessman Tom Sullivan
* The Watchdog Elizabeth Warren
* The Judge Jack Weinstein
* The Media Mogul Guillermo Zuloaga
* The Humanitarian Sakena Yacoobi
* The Educator Deborah Gist
The Atlantic failed to note that Gist has flown in a F-18 fighter jet with the Blue Angels, run the New York City Marathon, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, and broken a Guinness Record for kissing. Oh, and attended the Broad Center leadership academy. As well as being at the forefront of all those teacher firings at Central High School.
And she's purportedly on the short list to replace Michele Rhee.
