    Congratulations to Hillary on another well-deserved award. She is a champion for human rights and I can’t think of a better choice for a recipient.

    She’s going to need an extra room at the State Dept. for all these awards!

    There are those that look at things the way they are, and say, “Yes, we can.” And then they are given awards for offering inspiration. Or something. And Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa, Nelson Mendela, Mikhail Gorbachev, the Dalai Lama, everyone over at Doctors Without Borders, and Albert Schweitzer all look at each other and say, “WTF???!!!!”

    Others dreams of things that never were, and says, “Let me roll up my sleeves and get it done.” And Eleanor Roosevelt smiles from the rafters and just nods.

      Carolyn- well-said!

      You know I was going to put up a post this morning about the Nobel Prize speech but I was so annoyed I decided not to because I feel like I have just been altogether negative of late. Suffice it to say I think it’s rather unique for a Nobel Prize winner to go lecture the Nobel Committee and King and Queen of Norway (and apparently all of Europe) on how lucky they are to have the US do all the heavy in so-called “just wars.” Obama all but told them they’d all be speaking German right now if it wasn’t for us. I thought the speech was arrogant, inappropriate for the setting, overly defensive and quite frankly, rude. But apparently I am in the minority. Apparently Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, the neocons over at the National Review etc. all LOVED it!

      So, for now I am going to abstain from putting up a post about it. But I can’t promise that I won’t this weekend ;)
