Seems like a fairly worthy winner...

Also, looking at the list of candidates, BONO was up for this award? Wow.



"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997

Looksl ike they made a good call, and actually gave an award to a Muslim individual who deserved it.

Funny how the guy who lives elsewhere calls it an embarassment, whereas I, who have lived my entire life in the state of Illinois, have never been prouder of my state or its governor than when Ryan commuted all the death sentences. I was hoping he would get the Nobel this year, but I have no quarrel with the woman who did receive it.

Ditto... I thought it was perfectly reasonable thing to do, regardless of whether your for or against the death penalty. If you've lost all faith in the process, you sure as hell don't continue to exectue people. And a Republican Governor, no less....

The EAS is the Emergency Alert System which replaced the Embergency Broadcast System in the mid-90s. As a sidenote, it is amazing that the EAS was no activated here in the DC area during the 9/11 attacks.
