Re: Nobel Finalists

A journalist acquaintance says:

They do put together a short-list of contenders in each category; often

they’ll contact the people to let them know they’re being considered.

Me: I had not heard this. I was under the impression deliberations are kept secret by Nobel by-laws. If Sheehan was in fact contacted by the Nobel committee that would be very interesting to know. If she’s making it up, as I assumed, that would be interesting to know too.
