And I'll say it again: I love October
After months of awful news we finally get the Nobel announcements and the Supreme Court (with a new judge!) deliberating in a nuanced way. I can once again turn on the news.
And this morning this.
From the article:
As to whether the prize was given too early in Mr. Obama’s presidency, he (Mr. Jagland) said: “We are not awarding the prize for what may happen in the future but for what he has done in the previous year. We would hope this will enhance what he is trying to do.”
To me, the most important word in that quote is hope. Something we have sorely needed for a long time.
