And the Nobel Peace Prize Goes To …

I woke up this morning, slightly groggy from the diminishing pile of homework. I begin my daily ritual of finishing the touch up to the assignments I’d done from last night and to catch up with the latest news.

I’m still shocked from the news. Amused, maybe. Obama definitely lifted the hopes of many Americans and perhaps those abroad during his presidential candidacy but I could not see how he could be nominated for this year Nobel Peace prize.

Frankly, it’s just much too early. I haven’t see what contribution did he made to the world. I’m waiting for time to change my opinion, but as of now the Nobel committee is ridiculous. Past winners are judged based on their contribution to the world, not judged in hopes of future efforts. Less than a year into office and already a Nobel Prize winner, looks like Obama mania still haven’t subsided  down.

  1. Pfuffnick’s Nobel Economics Prize triumph hailed by many

    LONDON — The surprise choice of first-year graduate student Quintus Pfuffnick for the Nobel Prize in Economics drew praise from much of the world Friday even as many pointed out the youthful economist has not yet published anything in scholarly journals.

    The new PhD candidate was hailed for his willingness to tackle difficult problems, his commitment to improving the economic system, and his goal of bringing efficiency and equality into harmony.

    Professor Paul Krugman of Princeton, who won the prize in 2008, said Pfuffnick’s award shows great things are expected from him in the coming years.

    “In a way, it’s an award coming near the beginning of the first year in grad school of a relatively young economist that anticipates an even greater contribution towards making our economy a better place for all,” he said. “It is an award that speaks to the promise of Mr Pfuffnick’s message of hope.”

    He said the prize is a “wonderful recognition of Pfuffnick’s essay in his grad school application.”

    Won’t it be nice if it was my name on there instead.
