MAN OF THE YEAR

"Not everyone will agree with Newt Gingrich's positions, but he is the most influential individual in American politics since F.D.R." KENNETH HOLLOWAY St. Louis, Missouri

I APPLAUD YOUR CHOICE FOR MAN OF THE Year [Dec. 25-Jan. 1]. Like him or hate him (and I don't always like him), Newt Gingrich puts his money where his mouth is. It has been very refreshing to watch someone in such a high position concern himself with doing his job rather than spending time trying to beef up his approval rating. JOHN HALPIN Colorado Springs, Colorado Via E-mail
