"To many, Newt Gingrich may appear harsh and direct. But he has challenged the government to stop spending more than it takes in." PAUL D. MCKNIGHT Kansas City, Missouri

MUCH TO MY SURPRISE, TIME HAS TAKEN a bold step against the lopsided media tide in selecting Newt Gingrich for the coveted title Man of the Year [Dec. 25-Jan. 1]. Your acknowledgment of his solid leadership and concentrated efforts to rebuild America, despite media backlash and potential damage to his political career, is admirable. Congratulations to Gingrich, who deserves the recognition. ANKA J. BULAICH Watsonville, California
