Nobel Prize week

It's Nobel Prize week, with the prizes doled out one-a-day, like vitamins. Today was the announcement of the inner in medicine. Tomorrow we get physics, Wednesday is Chemistry, Thursday is Literature, Friday is Peace, and then we have to wait until Monday for Economics (can they give it to Paul Krugman again?) Check out all the action at

The only one I'm really interested in (although Peace is nice), is literature. I'll be traveling on Thursday, so I won't be on top of it, but would anyone like to hazard a guess as to the winner? I have no idea, but apparently the bookies are favoring poetry this year (see Poet tipped in Nobel Prize for Literature). I don't think anyone really has a clue.
