Right at the tippy-top of the list of Slate’s 80 most influential octogenarians is Utah’s own LDS prophet, Thomas S. Monson.---

The list of the 80 most influential movers and shakers included many famous names from the crotchety actor-turned-director Clint Eastwood (# 5), inveterate dirty old man and hero to millions Hugh Hefner (#27),and the “oracle from Omaha,” billionaire philanthropist and investor Warren Buffett (#3).

While making movies, money and skin-tastic publications will get you far, Slate gave the top position to Monson for “being regarded by the world’s more than 13 million Mormons as a prophet of God.”

Yeah…not too shabby, when you think about it.
