The Nobel Peace Price and What it Isn't

Members of my wonderful family were here this week. The visit was too short, considering it took them three days to drive here, but having them here was like being given a huge, bow-wrapped gift full of everything sweet.

It turned out that this is the week Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize.

I wondered inwardly, "Why?" and felt foolish for not knowing the answer. My sister-in-law even said at one point, "If this doesn't show you what a joke the Prize has become, I don't know what will."

I wondered if we were just being naive or excessively partisan.

After reading the venerable Ken Blanchard's post at South Dakota Politics, I feel vindicated. Or at least better informed.

Aren't you curious? Didn't you scratch your head and wonder where the connection lies? Blanchard gives a devestating explanation.

BONO: Three-time nominee, never a winner. Lest we have forgotten, there is no justice in the world. Luckily, a many like Bono needs no award to legitimize his humanitarian crusades.

I meant to add that as an update and link to you. You're right--it's a travesty.

Again--more evidence that the peace prize is highly questionable.
