Whatever it is given for, it seems extremely premature - you do not
hand out Nobel Peace Prizes because someone is good at public
speaking, which is all he has done so far. I cannot understand the
politics behind it, can someone enlighten me?

A complete failure of the system, in my opinion. It's obvious that they 
given the prize to the wrong American, and the wrong sex. It should have 
gone the the person that has been keeping a controlling eye on the 
predations of Putin from her own back garden - Sarah Palin....

Nathan/Lluis, I heard this guy talking, as a promo for a book signing, about 
his street photography on the radio yesterday. It appears to be style over 
substance, but he has a sprinkling of stylish senoritas too.
