    I was sitting in the kitchen when I heard the news about Obama's Nobel Prize. I frowned, said something to myself like 'Why should the Nobel committee be wiser than other Obama-maniacs?' and returned to my stew. But then I thought that the spontaneous reaction is not always the wisest either. The decision to stop the plans for the US missile basis in Poland, and the Cairo speech and came quickly to my mind and so I thought: maybe it's ok. What's worth mentioning though: There may be millions of Americans who have similar ideas as him. But through his POWER his words are more performative, they have a much stronger impact, than those of the other millions. Maybe that effect is particularly strong about the Peace Nobel Prize, the only one given to a topic pertaining to "humanities". In contrast to this, chemistry NPs have already been given to people with a nazi past: Butenandt (NSDAP), Wittig (SA). Obama is a mighty human being, no God, and from my point of view no devil either.
