A reader writes something tart, but fun. (Fun because tart?) He says,
Thanks for your post on the Nobel Peace Prize. It is nice to see that the selection committee has stopped smoking dope.
I had seriously thought that this year they would award the peace prize jointly to Fidel Castro and Kim Jong Il for turning over their dictatorial powers to sibling and son, respectively, thereby demonstrating “a strong commitment to maintaining peace within families.”
Man after my own heart (the letter-writer, I mean, of course).
