We’ve written previously about the politicization of the Nobel Peace Prize.
After the announcement that President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, a gentleman who voted for Obama in the last election and who is a produce industry icon with a wry sense of humor sent along the following note:
As you know, I have always admired your writing. As a matter of fact, I’m going to nominate you for the Nobel Prize for literature. I’ll tell the committee that you’re planning on writing a sequel to The Grapes of Wrath and you are planning for it to be exceptional.
Good plans along with a great way with words seem to be the fastest way to a Nobel these days.
The whole matter leaves this Pundit in an unusual condition… speechless.
