So, after having made the Nobel Peace Prize a laughingstock by awarding it to the barely-inaugurated President Obama because he, um, was, er, so, uh, I mean such a great…peace-making-potential guy, the Norwegians decided to actually make a morally serious choice that’s not without negative repercussions. Liu Xiaobo, literary critic and dissident, is exactly the kind of recipient that does the prize credit. It’s a better prize for having been given to him.*
Remember his name. It’s important.
* As is the literary prize for having gone to Mario Vargas Llosa, perhaps the Tolstoy of Latin America, which owned the novel in the 1980s as the Russians did in the late 19th century.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
