Rais Bhuiyan Named One of Esquire‘s “Americans of the Year”

As you’ll recall, Rais Bhuiyan is the Dallas man who, earlier this year, sued the state of Texas to stop the execution of Mark Stroman, the guy who in the weeks after the 9/11 attacks went on a killing spree and shot Bhuiyan in the face. I wrote about Bhuiyan for the October issue of D Magazine. This week Esquire named Bhuiyan, an immigrant from Bangladesh, to their list of Americans of the Year. Other people on the list include Steve Jobs, Elizabeth Warren, Warren Buffett, Paul Ryan, and Andrew Sullivan. Esquire‘s story about Bhuiyan, written by Mike Sager, winner of last year’s National Magazine Award for profile writing, isn’t online yet, but it’s quite moving.
