CONGRATULATIONS, Doris and Al!
Nobel Prize committee, kudos: Doris Lessing. Al Gore. Who's wooden now?!
Broadsheet has a good one up on Lessing. Upon learning the news, apparently, quod she: "I can't say I'm overwhelmed with surprise." Lessing continued, "I'm 88 years old and they can't give the Nobel to someone who's dead, so I think they were probably thinking they'd probably better give it to me now before I've popped off." I loves me a salty Nobel prize winner.
