#1 I see a real possibility for Paya to get the Nobel Peace Prize. Castro has pissed off the EU lately.

This will have the added bonus of Jimmy Carter having to explain why he has been so silent about the Cuban repression lately.

If Hans Blix gets it instead this will definitely be the end of my remaining respect for this prize.

#3 Thanks for the link, I've used it for a story. I met Oswaldo Paya once, the man struck me as humble, determined and very smart. I don't think he has a shot at the Nobel Prize though, I expect anti-Americanism to win again this year.

#4 Frank and TGA - I'm afraid I have to agree with Sorge on this one. Paya has two reeeeally big strikes against him - he's opposing a Communist dictatorship, and he's NOT fighting against the evil hegemonic imperialist AmeriKKKan fascist juggernaut that wants to conquer the world and rape its resources and enslave its huddled masses, blah, blah, blah.

Nope, it'll probably be Blix - once again proving, as someone said at the time of the award to Jimmuh Chamberlain...uh, Petain...dammit, I meant CARTER...that the Nobel Peace Prize has all the moral authority of a "Father of the Year" award from NAMBLA.
