Time's list of People Who Mattered in '11 is all over the place (featuring world leaders, international terrorists and a Kardashian), but three prominent Georgians made the list, one of whom unfortunately had to be executed to "matter."

Presidential candidates Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich, and recently executed death row inmate Troy Davis all appear on the list, Davis for being "yet another death penalty victim whom many consider innocent of wrongdoing," Gingrich for being "the foremost conservative alternative to establishment front-runner Mitt Romney" and Cain for being "Tea Party sentiment incarnate." (Mittens and Michelle Bachmann also made the list.)

Other additions to Time's list: Vindicated (although not in the court of public opinion) child murderer Casey Anthony, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, "Game of Thrones" creator/author George R.R. Martin, Gabrielle Giffords and Kim Kardashian (did we mention Kim Kardashian?).
