Maputo thanks for you comments. Let me clarify a few things. Our list of most influential people was compiled from interviews we had with about 200 Fools aged 70 and older. So the list is not a "Motley Fool" list. Also, we didn't ask for people who had the most positive influence. We asked for the most influential. And that's why you see people like Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin on the list. Keep in mind that these readers were at least teenagers if not adults during World War II. They experienced World War II and a number of them fought in it. I'm sure that war affected everyone that lived through it in ways that those who didn't can never pretend to understand. If these readers says Hitler and Stalin inluenced their lives, I believe them.For the record, Ghandi was nominated and Jonas Salk was tied for the 10th.Fool On!Heather WilhelmSpecial Features Producer
