Another southerner wins the Nobel Peace Prize

by shamanic

Congratulations to Al Gore, who today shares the Nobel Peace Prize with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I always like it when fellow southerners are recognized for good works. I'm proud to live in a state that is home to two Nobel laureates, Jimmy Carter and Martin Luther King, Jr., and it says a lot about this region that our land lays claim to some of the most terrible pieces of US history but our people produce some of the greatest dreams for America and the world.

To walk back in time with the full list of Nobel Peace Prize laureates, go here.
