The 50 Most Inspiring Post 50s Of The Year

In 2011, Post 50 people led, conquered, stood ground, and in some cases, inspired fervent vows to never model their atrocious behavior.

From activists to actors, politicians to pundits, and ordinary people doing the extraordinary, here is Huff/Post50's list of the 50 men and women (and one dog), in no particular order, who most rocked our boats in 2011.
