What I love about Wikipedia is it’s way of presenting information about something that occurred five hours ago as if it was old news. Case in point: Al Gore’s article, particularly this line:
He was awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize in October, along with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), “for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change” on October 12, 2007.
(I’ll ignore the grammatical redundancy in saying “… in October… on October 12, 2007.” Aw, heck… this is what wikipedia’s for, right? I just corrected it.)
In other news, congratulations, Al. Now will you definitively announce once way or another whether you’re going to run for president in 2008? (And you’d have my vote if you said you were.)
