Today President Obama received the Nobel Prize for Peace in Oslo, Norway. In his blog our friend Renny asked his readers for their reaction. Here is my response.
As an American I am proud that this prestigious award was given to our president. It was awarded based on the man’s potential and not on his accomplishments. It is like providing a very gifted young violinist with an exceptional violin. The hope is that the student will fulfill his promise and rise to the caliber of the instrument. If the committee has chosen well, the world is the beneficiary.
The Never-Ending 2017 French Election Saga – Voting Day - The plan was to drive to the French Embassy, cast our votes and go home—hopefully the drive there and back plus civic duty would take less than an hour.
