Talk about taking lemons and making lemonade. You lose a presidential election to a babbling dimwit, then manage to turn it all around and become a leading crusader for one of the most important issues in the history of human civilization. Then you win a Nobel Peace Prize, while the guy who beat you drags the world down deeper into religious conflict while destroying two countries in the process. Well struck, indeed. Congrats to Al Gore on his momentous achievement. Liked the movie, liked the book, and like the man. I'm glad that environmental issues have become so central that even the Nobel committee took notice.
Now, if we could only do something about Global Warming. Nobel prizes don't cool the Earth, as I'm sure Al Gore would agree. There is much work ahead.
