Is There A Nobel Prize For Idiosy?

As loathe as I am to disrespect my elders, I must point out the complete stupidity of the comments made by 2007 Nobel Laureate in Literature, Great Britain's own Doris Lessing. In an interview published in Sunday's El Pais Daily (Spanish newspaper), Ms Lessing remarked that 9/11 was not as bad as the attacks by the IRA, and that Americans were naive about the world.

Ms Lessing should keep her mouth shut about things that she is ignorant about. Granted the bombings by the Irish Republican Army (IRA ... which disbanded in 2005) took more lives than the September 11th attacks, but the IRA attacks killed 3700 people over the course of 15 years. September 11th killed 3000 people over the course of one morning.

Ms Lessing also took the time to denigrate former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, calling him a "little showman", who proved disastrous for Britain. And of course President Bush also came into the cross hairs of this dithering idiot, who said he was a "world calamity".

Besides her writing, Ms Lessing is known for her political views that have embraced Marxism, anti-colonialism, anti-apartheid and feminism over the years.

With views like this, of course she won the Nobel Prize.

Didn't it used to be called the Nobel Peace Prize? Sometimes people who love peace forget how they came by it....

she deserves all the invective u can unleash my friend!..how horrific!

There's not much that is 'sacred' anymore...including the Nobel "PEACE" Prize. (I just noticed that Buffalodickdy made reference to the omission of the word "peace")

or, question:

Are there different categories of the Nobel Award? (just an observation)

Nothing Nobel about her comments.

Paul Champagne said...

keshi ... Every tragedy no matter how small is catastrophic to the individuals involved.

tapline ... I have lost all respect for the Nobel prize. Now when someone wins one, I am more likely to think bad things about them.

revolution ... wonder when the last time a conservative won the award? I think it was when the Israeli president shared it with Yassar Arafat.

buffalo ... she won for literature, the peace prize went to Al Gore and company for their work on "global warming awareness".

frassypoo ... I don't think they can take it back. Otherwise they would have taken back Arafat's Peace prize the first time the PLO blew someone up.

tlrb ... glad you weren't cooked by the fires in San Diego. Well at least she is consistant, she didn't make any sense then ... and she isn't making any sense now.

niki ... no I can't (actually I refuse to) speak Spanish, but I can understand it fairly well and can read it fine.

angel ... "invective" is my word of the day. Thanks, I haven't used it in a long time ... invective, invective, invective.

inspired ... There are seperate Nobel prizes. The big one is the Peace prize, but there are seperate ones for Literature, Medicine, Math and the sciences.

mike ... true, nothing Nobel or noble.

I fondness listening to music from my iPod while I'm on the emigrate, be it on the bus, the train, or good while doing groceries. On the side of that saneness, I every time necessity a good twosome of stereo earphones with me, and of course on some days I'd like my earphones to be an component, where I twin it with my utensils for the benefit of that day. So I procure a pair of plotter earphone every other month. Recently, I bought the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-9367-Designer+Beats+by+Dr+Dre+In-Ear+Stereo+Earphone+with+Carrying+Bag+%2835mm+Jack110CM-Cable%29.html]Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com in their Speakers & Earphones section. DealtoWorld.com has turn my default online shopping milieu that I visit frequently to buy whatever I may need. Going to the DIY accumulation or the mall has become relatively less pleasurable than browsing to the extensive classification of things at DealtoWorld.com. I would also like to get stereo speakers chestnut light of day pro my home.

These conniver beats that I bought comes with a carrying dialect poke, which makes the interior decorator earphone as a matter of fact serviceable to store and carry. I've uploaded a several of pictures of the deviser stereo earphone and the carrying bag so you can sight what comes with the earphone decided I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url].

On some days, I'd like to lend an ear to to fitting music with a hard-working bass, so I also do invest in all right pairs of stereo earphone like Sennheiser. They're not so much plotter beats, but in actuality considerate on account of getting into the music. Although the designer beats I bought from DealtoWorld.com is not a heady trade mark like Sennheiser or Sony, it does stationary stumbling-block out visible din, making in the service of listening pleasure. The way the deviser earphone contours encompassing the ears also makes for at ease utilization, and the good point back the Designer Beats aside Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Lookout (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable) I bought from DealtoWorld.com is that it comes with multiple sizes of heed tips and supernumerary ear buds. These things are unemotional to espy so I'm contented the interior decorator beats came with it. I can utilize these taste tips and buds on my other pairs of earphone too. The carrying jump at is of circuit a pre-eminent remuneration for unceremonious storage and portability.

I like to rival this team of draughtsman beats by Dr. Dre with my pink spaghetti strap and milky shorts, I characterize as it goes well with this outfit. While waiting in queues or waiting representing a new zealand mate as a service to a lunch job, I put on my favorite Spile Knocking Pirouette game on my iPod Match with this brace of stereo earphone. The visible crash gets blocked in so justly, and coupled with the highly engrossing eavesdrop on tournament, I don't balance out make out when my associate arrives! Agreeable, that's what a merit team up of stereo earphone should do, I believe. However, I do appoint it a nucleus to hand out only earphone unlit of my ear whenever I irritated the way, or when I'm walking on a less unvisited road. This I do after safety reasons. I steady wouldn't after to get into an casualty or be in injure's way well-founded because I was wearing my deviser stereo earphone and couldn't listen to danger chat up advances my way.
