Bush, Giuliani Make 'People' List

NEW YORK (AP) _ In this year of terrorist attacks and war in Afghanistan, President Bush and New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani are among ``The 25 Most Intriguing People of 2001,'' according to People magazine.

Also on the list, released Thursday, is ``The Firefighter,'' which represents all firefighters for their heroism on Sept. 11 and afterward.

``Our firefighters helped save more than 25,000 lives that day _ the greatest single rescue mission in America's history,'' Giuliani said. ``They knew what they were up against, but they went in anyway. That's what heroes do.''

As in previous years, the most-intriguing list features performers, including Nicole Kidman, Mariah Carey and the cast of ``Friends''; and politicians, including Gary Condit and Condoleezza Rice.

Harry Potter is included, even though he's a fictional character. So did ``The Corrections'' author Jonathan Franzen, who creates fictional characters but rejected being included in Oprah Winfrey's book club.
