Peace Prize Becoming Irrelevant
Brian Lee Crowley, Ottawa Citizen
Memo to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee: There is a price to be paid for awarding the prizes before the race is run, let alone won. Prizes are meant to be awarded for performance, not for potential, for results, not effort. Top-seeded players in tennis are occasionally beaten by obscure unseeded opponents, and much-hyped Olympic hopefuls sometimes choke in the event.
