The Congrats Due


I’d like to add my name to those congratulating Al Gore for his peace prize.  Frankly, I can’t think of anyone who has done more to bring peace to this world – from Rwanda to the Sudan, from Burma to North Korea – than Al Gore.  And what a selfless man.  He always avoids media attention, preferring to direct accolades to the little people who do all the heavy lifting behind the scenes.  And like Mother Teresa, Al Gore eschews materialism and luxury, despite his enormous wealth from oil and technology stocks.  I hear tell that he insists on flying older private jets to his six-figure speeches.  What a guy!  I just wish there was another honor somebody could bestow on Al Gore — as long as it’s not president.
