Run, Forrest, Run

So, Al is the latest Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Many kudos will be sent to Mr. 'almost' President in the days and months to come; but I think FSJ's will go down as the sharpest of all.

Here's a taste of the passages I liked most...

"...Well, (Al) you have changed the world. Profoundly. You have raised awareness of the most pressing issue of our time. You have put the entire world on red alert. You have opened our eyes to the invisible danger that lurks all around us. And you know what? Along the way you have become a better campaigner than you ever were back in the day when you were actually running for office. You're like Obi-Wan Kenobi -- struck down, you have become more powerful than we could ever have imagined...

...Al, I say this as your friend, but also as an American: Run. Run, damn you. Dig us out of this hole we've fallen into. Larry and I and the rest of the Valley will give you all the money you need. Just run. Run..."
