This weekend, we went to an "Obama Wins the Nobel" party. I was asked what I thought and I told them that I thought the award was to be given for achievements not for HOPE for future achievements.
I was not the only person who thought that way until one person said the award had been given to people who had not achieved something, but who had laid the foundation for future achievements of other people. There was a good discussion at the "party" and I still think what I think.
But it is, still, also good to see people lose their minds over this, many of the same people who said, before this, the Nobel didn't mean anything, now really blowing arteries over this.
But the issue really bores me, if you really want to know.
