The Nobel

Lots of people seem to have lots to say about the Nobel Peace Prize for President Obama. A lot of it makes sense, on both sides; you can read it yourself.

However, maybe we're taking these prizes too seriously. What about Greg Mortenson (building schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan), or Pete Seeger (Peace), or Rosalind Franklin (co-discoverer of double-helix with Watson and Crick)? What about John Updike or Robert Frost or Vladimir Nabokov (Literature/Poetry) etc?

In fact, all I can say is Henry Kissinger ("Peace", 1973).

Get my drift?
