Re “The 100 Most Influential People in the World” [May 5–12]: I must confess that this volume has been among the most refreshing I have read of late. Selecting the 100 most influential people could never have been easy. Choices are based on arguable and sometimes challenging premises. But this particular volume was scholarly preceded by Nancy Gibbs’ editorial, which shielded your team from possible allegations of questionable biases and nuances. TIME has evolved very well in deciding on what criteria to use for selecting the world’s most influential people. Bravo!

I enjoyed your issue a lot but have to express my confusion about the picture on the cover.
