Reality based since 1949, with an extremely brief time out in 1967.
Finland's ex-president Martti Ahtisaari received the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for his efforts to build a lasting peace from Africa and Asia to Europe and the Middle East.
This doesn't look too promising Mr Creek. I am beginning to think our chances for a Nobel Prize are about the same as finding a VFW Post named after Dick Cheney. Our prizelessness isn't the result of some lack of merit on our part, but rather the result of a secret Scandanavian cabal that seeks to punish anyone who has eaten saurkraut and reward lefse users.I propose that we create our own prize right here in the USofA. We could call it the Creek Prize or the Torbel Prize after a fictional character in an old Sherlock Holmes movie and we could award it to whoever we wish.
Umm - the endowment may be somewhat modest when compared with the longer established Nobel. After all, Nobel invented dynamite and we haven't invented anything - yet.
