Is There a Nobel for Acting?

Flying back from China and seeing that Harold Pinter won the 2005 Nobel Prize for literature, I was reminded that more than 50 years ago the winner was Winston Churchill. Maybe all Nobel Laureates aren't equally deserving, but it's unimaginable that any current politician could aspire to win the literature prize. In fact, it's difficult to imagine politicians of any magnitude writing anything of beauty or consequence ever again.

I should be un-jet-lagged in a day or so. Meanwhile, thanks so much to Gus and Lars for keeping the kettle boiling. It was great fun to open their presents yesterday.
